Now entering our seventh season, Humber River Shakespeare Company continues to offer professional and accessible theatre year-round to communities in the Humber Watershed and beyond – from touring Shakespeare-in-the-Park in the summer, to innovative and original Canadian works in unique spaces in the fall.
Humber River Shakespeare’s adaptation of A Christmas Carol started as a reading for three holiday events in the GTA. After two years the script was expanded, scenes, masks and puppetry were added, and the result is an hour long production that audiences have embraced as an annual tradition.
HRSC Artistic Director Kevin Hammond explains the motivation behind the production: “Performing ‘A Christmas Carol’ is our way of giving back and sharing a universal message of hope and charity and kindness. It is a treat and an honour to perform the show each year and I am always amazed at how moved the audiences are”.
Whether by the fire in a Victorian era hotel at Montgomery’s Inn, picturesque gallery theatre of the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, the vaulted castle walls of Casa Loma, or in the beautifully conceived Alton Mill Arts Centre, this charming one hour performance will warm the hearts of Tiny Tims and Scrooges alike.
