A Milwaukee Family Tradition For Over 40 Years!
Don’t miss the wonderment and joy of a brand new A Christmas Carol. Featuring the same traditional story with your favorite characters, Milwaukee Rep is excited to present a new, family friendly adaptation written by Rep Artistic Director Mark Clements. You’ll be transported back to the heart of Victorian London for a magical immersive experience on the biggest and most elaborate set The Rep has ever created. Jonathan Wainwright, a favorite of local audiences, will take on the role of Scrooge becoming the 12th actor to portray one of Dickens’ most recognizable characters. Jonathan has been seen previously in A Christmas Carol as Mr. Cratchit and recently appeared as George in The Rep’s production, Of Mice and Men. Join Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, and Scrooge in this holiday classic the whole family will love!
What’s A Christmas Carol? Should I See It?
Christmastime is a blur. Everyone needs a break from buying obligatory presents and attending mandatory parties, this is a great show to sit back, relax, and allow the Christmas spirit (or spirits!) to wash over you. Plus, this is a brand new production adapted by Mark Clements himself! If there was ever a year when you HAVE to go see A Christmas Carol, this is it!
