The free virtual production of A Christmas Carol, presented by ConocoPhillips, is a gift to the entire Houston area. 

A highly inventive, digital adaptation of the Dickens classic, pared down to its essential elements. A resident company of actors assemble online to perform a new production of the heartwarming Christmas story. With everyone performing from home, creating a magical world of holiday make-believe is no easy feat. The socially distanced troupe brings this holiday classic to imaginative new heights. It will be A Christmas Carol like no other.

This year, our digital performance of A Christmas Carol is free to all Houstonians. Please consider a donation to the Alley Theatre so we can continue to bring the magic of Theatre to you.

Before you watch the performance, the A Christmas Carol program provides cast bios, sponsor backgrounds, virtual conversations, and much more including video interviews with cast and creative team. Read
