Valley Center Stage-Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol

Valley Center Stage’s annual presentation of Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol will take place live and in person at the newly renovated Sallal Grange on December 3rd – 19th, 2021. 

The North Bend holiday tradition is returning to live theater in a new and exciting location. Still, it brings back to life the heartwarming classic that is part of so many families’ special time together. Telling the story of second chances, transformation, forgiveness, and compassion, this adaptation of Dickens’s classic is faithful to the original version.

The new Valley Center Stage location is an improvement all around. It is handicap accessible and has dedicated parking allowing greater access for the community it serves. It’s been renovated to provide an intimate theater room with more raised seating, upgraded sound quality, and new heat/air conditioning. The new spacious foyer/lounge and concessions area are the perfect settings for beverages and mingling before the show.
