December 1 – 30, 2022

American Shakespeare Center’s beloved holiday tradition A Christmas Carol returns to the Blackfriars Playhouse in Staunton December 1-30. Every performance begins with a rousing singalong of holiday tunes led by the cast, and then immerses the audience in Charles Dickens’ tale of transformation and joy, as the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future take miserly Ebenezer Scrooge on the ride of his miserable, money-grubbing life.

As the American Shakespeare Center players tell the tale of stingy Scrooge onstage this December, the Blackfriars Playhouse lobby will be a place of giving and good will through ASC’s Project Goodfellow. Initiated in 2018 by American Shakespeare Center cast member Constance Swain, ASC’s Project Goodfellow partners with local organizations in the spirit of giving and gratitude. This season, Project Goodfellow supports Valley Mission and, from December 2-30, the ASC will collect coats and much needed winter accessories.  Bins will be in the lobby of the playhouse and patrons are encouraged to bring their donations when they come to see the show.

Tickets for this holiday favorite sell out early, so make your plans now!
