About Christmas Carol

A perennial classic, A Christmas Carol could not be any more pertinent than it is nowadays. A warning against unfettered greed and the inhumanity of profit above all else, Dickens' holiday ghost story serves as a cautionary tale for the 21st century as much as it did for the 19th. Eclectic Full Contact Theatre's audio adaptation immerses the listener in the world of Ebenezer Scrooge, but also holds some surprises, even for longtime fans. 

Full of humor, heart, and passages from the novel rarely, if ever, seen in an adaptation, EFCT humanizes the world's most famous miser, offering up a picture of Scrooge as a three-dimensional character. EFCT's adaptation is fast, fun, and a delight for the whole family with incredible vocal performances, and professional sound design and effects to make you feel as if you're right there with Scrooge, even while in the comfort of your own home.

Eclectic Full Contact

Eclectic Full Contact Theatre Company was formed by a group of long standing, Chicago-residing theatre artists and collaborators who are committed to providing visionary, creative, compelling and diverse works and giving theatre patrons “FULL CONTACT” with our creative process. Our desire is to expand the relationship between audience and actor: to move theatregoers beyond the traditional role of passive witness. To not just invite you behind the scenes, but make you instrumental in their creation. Enjoy unprecedented access to the process. Join the discussion. And truly share in the triumph of every performance.  Audience members can have access to read-throughs, tech rehearsals, Q&A talkbacks and continued discussions at social media outlets.  On stage or backstage, we are compelled to put on shows with the intent of expanding our community and artwork in the Chicagoland area.
