A Christmas Carol Durham Performing Arts Center Tickets

A Christmas Carol, by Ira David Wood III, is the earliest comic adaptation of the great classic by Charles Dickens. A musical, which has become part of North Carolina’s Christmas tradition, has been labeled as "one of the most successful shows in North Carolina theatre history", by the News & Observer, a local state newspaper. Not to be left with an impression that it is only a North Carolina "thing", the musical has been staged worldwide twice and a total of one million have had the privilege of watching and enjoying it.

The musical-comedy premiered in Durham in 1974 and is still being staged their ever since.
