Back by popular demand, join The Court Jesters this Christmas as they ambitiously recreate Charles Dickens’ classic Yuletide tale with just two performers, one pianist and, of course, a little help from you, in the audience…
Packed full of brand-new jokes and interactive excitement, A Christmas Carol is a Christchurch Christmas tradition, returning for the fourth year of festive fun!
Fast, funny and magical, this hilarious comedy is perfect for families and staff parties alike. It’s the perfect way to get yourself in the spirit of the season – and remember what Christmas is truly about. Comedy.
Why we love this PRODUCTION
“The harsher the world becomes the more I want my comedy to be kind. I love how A Christmas Carol has become a show that is entirely about audience participation – which apparently people loathe – that sells out year after year. That tells me we’re doing it right. Kindly. “
Associate Director, Dan Bain

"The joy of Bain’s script is that no two shows are ever the same, so you can enjoy this show year after year. Ōtautahi audiences deserve a distinctly Christchurch Christmas celebration, so after perusing the Ballantynes window and placing a flower in the top of a road cone, enjoy another helping of A Christmas Carol at the Court Theatre."
"We all need a bit of Christmas spirit to power us through to the end of the year, and A Christmas Carol is the fuel you need. Do yourself a favour and book tickets, the show is perfect for a date night, staff function or even a family night out."

"Fabulously funny and great cast. Highly recommended.""Loved it so much. My 11yr old son and I had so much fun and laughter and he enjoyed singing Jingle Bells. Highly recommend this for the whole family. Thank you so much for a great night and all your hard work. Disappointed with $28 for pizza and chips, pizza had little taste, quite floury and burnt."
