A Christmas Carol

December 16-29, 2016

A Christmas Carol
By Arlitia Jones and Michael Evan Haney based on the book by Charles Dickens
Directed by Tom Robenolt

An Anchorage Holiday Tradition.
Witness Ebenezer Scrooge’s miraculous Christmas Eve transformation in Perseverance Theatre’s adaptation of Dickens’ famous book. Ebenezer Scrooge is a greedy businessman, with no place in his life for kindness, compassion, or charity, and destined to a lonely old age. But when four ghosts appear and warn him of a miserable afterlife, Scrooge is reminded of all the chances he had before to make different choices. Charles Dickens’ classic tale of redemption skillfully faithfully adapted by Arlitia Jones and Michael Evan Haney never ceases to please.
Performances in the Discovery Theatre at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts.

Great performances and great venues go hand in hand, and Perseverance is proud to be part of the work of the PAC and its resident companies to raise the quality of life in Alaska, and contribute vitality to the downtown core of Alaska’s largest city.

About the Discovery Theatre

Recognized as an excellent setting for theatre, opera, dance, film and musical presentations, the Discovery Theatre boasts a stage in size equal to the Atwood Concert Hall with a seating capacity of approximately 700.

The auditorium of the Discovery Theatre is characterized by long, sweeping curves, defining partitions and balconies and a ceiling of silvery, saucer-shaped acoustical discs. The seat upholstery, a tapestry designed by Alaskan resident Paula Dickey entitled Salmonberries, adds to the overall effect with a palette of rose and forest green.

The Discovery Theatre seats approximately 700 people across two levels.
