Just in time for the holidays, Driftwood Theatre presents a Christmas classic of Shakespearian proportions! 

When miserly theatre owner Ebenezer Scrooge puts the ‘humbug’ in Christmas, he’s transported on a redemptive journey to save his very soul. Haunted by the spirits of Christmas past (Puck), present (Falstaff) and future (Hamlet’s dad), Scrooge learns to appreciate the true spirit of the holiday season as only Shakespeare can imagine. 

With appearances by characters from Shakespeare’s most popular plays, William Shakespeare’s A Christmas Carol is an inventive, hilarious, and touching holiday story for the whole family inspired by the work of Charles Dickens and William Shakespeare. 

Carrying on Driftwood’s fine tradition of informal readings of plays over a pint, William Shakespeare’s A Christmas Carol is a holiday mash-up you don’t want to miss. In partnership with the community-minded folks at Whitby’s Town Brewery, Play in a Pub is sure to be a jolly, interactive affair as audience members join Driftwood Theatre’s professional performers in reading, singing, and celebrating this holiday masterpiece.

Play in a Pub: William Shakespeare’s A Christmas Carol is SOLD OUT.


We’re thrilled to be working with community partner Town Brewery for this season’s Play in a Pub: William Shakespeare’s A Christmas Carol.
