The Triangle’s Grandest Holiday Event Returns
Ira David Wood III’s beloved musical comedy, A Christmas Carol, celebrates its 43rd Anniversary this year and will return to DPAC December 14 through 17. The show has been performed annually since 1974 and has been named one of the “Top 20 Events in the Southeast.” Cited as “one of the most successful shows in North Carolina theatre history,” A Christmas Carol has enjoyed critically acclaimed tours to England and France.
With over one million people having experienced the magic of A Christmas Carol throughout the years, the show regularly sells out. A few of its honors include being named one of the Top 20 Events In The Southeast, the Metro Ovation Award, the Triangle Arts & Entertainment Reader’s Choice Award, Proclamations from the Mayor of Raleigh and the Governor of North Carolina, Proclamations from Compiegne, France and Kingston-Upon-Hull, England, and the distinct privilege of being the first theatrical production staged at DPAC.
Continue a family tradition or start a new one. Plan on making the Triangle’s Grandest Holiday Event part of your Holiday Season!
Please note Ira David Wood IV will play Scrooge at the December 16th matinee.

Currently, this event has not approved using our video screens. Please feel free to check back closer to the event for updates. If approved, we will post notice here.
For many concert, comedy, and special events at DPAC, we offer added views of the stage with two big screens (size: 16’ x 9’) hung to the sides of the stage or above the stage. These big screens can add to the visual experience of our concert, comedy, and special events and give guests seated farther from the stage what we like to call “a tenth row view”. Approval to use these screens always rests with the visiting show and about half of all concert and comedy events do use these screens.
All performances scheduled at DPAC normally take place as planned. For more information on our inclement weather policy please visit INCLEMENT WEATHER FAQ.
