Embark on a journey to 19th century London this winter at the Hangar Theatre for our second annual production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol directed by Michael Barakiva. Join Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future in a timeless tale of hope and redemption. This retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic novel has been adapted for the Hangar stage by Ithaca’s own Aoise Stratford. Adults and children alike will enjoy this wonderful world of music, costumes, and magic. Tickets are on sale now at the buy tickets link above or by phone at 607.273.ARTS!

“The thing that makes this specific story so enduring is that it’s a tale of redemption,” Barakiva noted. “Scrooge’s journey is so profoundly moving — he starts the play as a very unhappy husk of a man, and by the end of the play we are absolutely convinced that he has seen the error of his ways and is transformed. The breadth of that journey is so profound and hopeful, that it makes it really clear why the story has endured for more than 170 years.”

Morning Matinees: we are inviting local schools and organizations to come see the show during the week before opening. Contact the Hangar Theatre Box Office at 607.273.ARTS for more information.

The box office at the theatre is closed for the season. Tickets can be purchased online, by phone at 607.273.ARTS or in person at our Administrative Offices located in Center Ithaca (171 E. State St., Space 230 Ithaca, NY 14850).

Run Time: 2 hours total, includes a brief intermission. This production is for audience members age 5 and up.

Please Note: Material is not suitable for infants, or children under 5.

Official Press Release

“Stratford’s text drops the idea of narration and adds a few telling feminist touches. Her most wonderful invention: three working-class kids who thread the play and provide some of the missing narration. A theatrical coup: Scrooge floating over the sea by a lighthouse (from Dickens, but often dropped), marvelously realized by Barakiva and Richards.” -Ross Haarstad, the Ithaca Times
