A Christmas Carol Returns In 2023!

The smash-hit Old Vic production of Charles Dickens’ immortal classic A Christmas Carol, returns to Melbourne to delight audiences at the Comedy Theatre, this November 17-December 31.

Conceived and directed by Matthew Warchus and adapted for the stage by Jack Thorne, audiences will be welcomed into an immersive experience, brimming with music and merriment.

Theatregoers have a limited season to experience this powerful, joyous, and uplifting production.

Winner of five Tony Awards, making A Christmas Carol the most awarded play of 2021, this adaptation of one of the English language’s most beloved pieces of literature features dazzling staging, moving storytelling, and 12 cherished Christmas carols, including O Holy Night, Joy to the World and Silent Night.

After premiering at London’s The Old Vic in 2017, A Christmas Carol has become a much-loved festive staple over the past six seasons. The role of Scrooge has been performed by a raft of celebrated actors including Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill), Andrew Lincoln (The Walking Dead), Stephen Mangan (The Split), Stephen Tompkinson (DCI Banks), Paterson Joseph (Vigil), and Owen Teale (Games of Thrones, Line of Duty).

The production then opened on Broadway in 2019 – with Scrooge played by Campbell Scott (House of Cards) and Bradley Whitford (The West Wing) – garnering rave reviews, breaking box office records and winning every Tony Award for which it was nominated, including ‘Best Score’ (the first win for a non-musical play).

There is yet no word if the cast of the 2022 production will return.

Tickets are now available for pre-sale through Ticketek.
