Tony Award-winning actor Jefferson Mays steps into over 50 roles to bring Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol to life in a new film adaptation of the classic tale. Proceeds from streaming sales of the film will benefit community, amateur, and regional theaters across the country that have been affected by COVID-19. Two-time Tony Award nominee Michael Aren directed this adaptation, which was filmed at the historic United Palace, one of New York City’s five Loews Wonder Theaters built in the 1920s and 1930s.

This imaginative filmed version of Dicken’s beloved Christmas story is based on the highly acclaimed 2018 stage production which made its world premiere at Los Angeles’ Geffen Playhouse. You can purchase tickets for an at-home screening of this performance here! Tickets purchased via that website will automatically benefit local community theaters based on ZIP code. Proceeds from tickets purchased outside of the U.S. or non-affiliated ZIP will be divided and shared with partner theaters. The film will be available for streaming through January 3, 2021.
