UPDATE: 12/12/19 – The Gaillard Center released the following statement regarding this performance:
We regret to announce that A Christmas Carol scheduled at the Charleston Gaillard Center for Wednesday, December 18 is cancelled. Below is a note from the show:
“The tour bus for the Nebraska Theatre Caravan’s production of A Christmas Carol was in an accident near Waterville, ME Tuesday, December 10, 2019 at 10:30pm. No critical injuries were sustained. The bus was owned and operated by Arrow Stage Lines. After collecting information and feedback from our cast and crew, we are canceling the remaining dates of the national tour. While we are sad to see the tour cut short, we consider our theatre a family, and the physical and emotional health and wellbeing of those involved is most important. Thank you to everyone who has reached out in support of our touring members of A Christmas Carol. We have immense respect and deep appreciation for the performers and crew who give so much of their time and talent to share this beautiful story with theatre goers across the U.S. each year.”
The Gaillard Center team is saddened by this tragic event and we hope they make a full recovery soon.

On December 18th, the Gaillard Center presents Charles Dickens’ most beloved holiday story, A Christmas Carol, as you’ve never seen it before.
This celebrated Charles Jones adaptation from the Nebraska Theatre Caravan is rich with thrilling ensemble music, alive with color and movement, and is created to tell this great and enduring tale in a manner that people of all ages will enjoy. Woven throughout this classic tale are beautiful new arrangements and moving renditions of holiday songs such as “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” “Wassail Wassail,” “Good Christian Men Rejoice,” “Away in a Manger,” “Greensleeves,” “The Boar’s Head Carol,” and many more. Featuring a cast of 23 performers, live musicians, and Broadway-style scenery and costumes, audiences cherish this sumptuous holiday classic.
In this adaptation for the stage, one actor plays Ebenezer Scrooge. Each of the 23 member ensemble supports both the story and the music with exceptional ensemble singing and dancing, while each taking on a significant character as the story unfolds. The current directors and designers of this production do not attempt to stray from Charles Jones’ original concept. As stewards of the production they strive to convey to each company of players the integrity and the magic that are intrinsic to the piece.
