A Christmas Carol: A Memphis family holiday tradition for 40 years.


David Shipley as Ebenezer Scrooge

Theatre Memphis will count down the days to Christmas with a reprise of the perennial favorite, A Christmas Carol. The show runs from December 1-23.

Miserly Ebeneezer Scrooge is approached by the ghostly vision of his former business partner, Jacob Marley, who warns him of an upcoming spiritual journey. An eye-opening exploration leads to happiness and enlightenment, not to mention song, dance, and holiday cheer.

To celebrate this 40th year of producing A Christmas Carol for our community, we will be holding a reunion, “Casts of Christmas Pasts” on opening night, December 1, 2017. Join us if you have ever performed in one of our night time ACC productions and celebrate Scrooge’s journey here at TM.

Call the box office at 901.682.8323,  give us your name and year(s) that you were in the cast and get $10 tickets for up to four family members for that performance.

Original and long-time Scrooge Barry Fuller will be reading a passage at the beginning of the show and a reception will be held after the show to visit and have photo opportunities. We are hoping to get groups of Tiny Tims, Cratchit Families, Marleys, Scrooges, etc. God bless them, every one!

Another special event will be held Sunday, December 10 @ 7pm. “Holiday for Heroes” is a designated night to offer military, policemen, firefighters, first responders, and Shelby County teachers discounted tickets for that night’s performance. All tickets will be $10 (limit of four per family at that price). Call the box office for reservations, 901.682.8323.
