About One Christmas Carol

Attention, Motherlode community! Murphys Creek Theatre is thrilled to announce our upcoming production of One Christmas Carol, a heartwarming adaptation of the classic tale. 

With one actor and over 35 distinct characters, this one-man tour de force is an intimate and spirited evening of theatre that everyone in the family will love! Utilizing only three unmatched chairs, Dickens’ famous story about selfishness and selflessness is stripped down to its bare essence, forgoing the usual opulence of the holidays and focusing on what is of utmost importance during the season. Dickens’ colorful characters are all present—Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchitt, Tiny Tim, Fezziwig, Belle, the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present, and Future—springing to new life with a treasure trove of moral lessons for one and all. just one actor and a timeless story. God bless us, every one!

We believe that the magic of live theatre should be accessible to all in our community, especially during the holiday season when the spirit of giving and togetherness is at its peak.  That’s why we’re offering "pay-what-you-can" tickets to ensure everyone can enjoy this festive performance, regardless of financial circumstances.

In the spirit of generosity, we encourage those who can to “pay it forward” by contributing a little extra when purchasing their tickets. By doing so, you're helping to make this ticket model possible and the arts accessible to all.

In addition to providing a memorable theatrical experience, One Christmas Carol will serve as a fundraising event for Murphys Creek Theatre. Even with a growing audience base, we need help to cover all the necessary costs. By attending this production, you not only get to immerse yourself in the holiday magic but also contribute to the sustainability and growth of our theatre. Your support will help us ensure MCT can celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2024 and continue to bring outstanding productions and educational programs to our community.  

Let's come together this holiday season, embrace the spirit of giving, and celebrate the arts with One Christmas Carol at Murphys Creek Theatre. Pay-what-you-can tickets are now available, so join us as we create lasting memories and spread joy throughout the Motherlode.
