A Christmas Carol

Dec 15 - 16 , 2012

A Christmas Carol - Get your Merry here! One of the Triangle’s most beloved Christmas traditions will once again be featured at the Durham Performing Arts Center this December for three shows only. Ira David Wood III’s hit musical comedy adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic will run December 15th and 16th, 2012 in Durham. Last year’s shows at DPAC sold out, so plan on getting your tickets early!

Theatre In The Park's original musical comedy adaptation of A Christmas Carol, based on the book by Charles Dickens and adapted for the stage by Ira David Wood III, has been cited as “one of the most successful shows in North Carolina theatre history” and voted one of “the top 20 events in the Southeast” by the Southeast Tourism Society. A Christmas Carol has become a holiday tradition in the Southeast, and has also enjoyed critically acclaimed tours to England and France. Most recently in November of 2009, A Christmas Carol celebrated another international tour to Compiegne, France. A Christmas Carol was the first full scale theatrical event staged at DPAC during its opening week in December of 2008. Approximately 30,000 people attend the local production runs in Raleigh and Durham each year.
