Canadian Stage presents a production of Ronnie Burkett Theatre of Marionettes

By Ronnie Burkett

This production is intended for adult audiences (ages 16+) only. Children under the age of 16 will not be admitted.

In this raucous, adults-only holiday treat, the cast of the Daisy Theatre take on the beloved classic A Christmas Carol for the merriest marionette mash-up ever. Don’t miss Esmé Scrooge’s wild, improvised ride to redemption!
