There are few Christmas plays more traditional than A Christmas Carol at Goodman Theatre.

It's that time of year when multitudinous, mostly heartwarming variations on Scrooge, Rudolph and other familiar holiday faces fill the city's stages. Take a break from shopping the holiday markets, taking in the seasonal concerts or give your ankles a rest from ice skating with these perennial holiday favorites and new Christmas plays, comedy shows and dance performances.
