A Christmas Carol at Spadina Museum
"Of all the good days in the year, on Christmas Eve, Scrooge sat busy in his counting-house. Heat and cold had little influence on him. No warmth could warm, no wintry weather chill him. No wind that blew was bitterer than he..."
In this festive tale of transformation, join cold-hearted miser Ebenezer Scrooge on a candlelit journey to redemption. A chilling blend of immersive theatre and traditional vocals, "A Christmas Carol" invites audiences to explore Toronto's historic Spadina Museum alongside three unlikely ghosts. In this musical adaptation of one of Dickens' most beloved tales, follow Scrooge as he uncovers the secrets of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come.

About Spadina Museum:
Spadina Museum offers a glimpse of Toronto during the 1900-1930 period through the lens of the Austin family. The museum highlights the effects of transformative events on the Austins such as the First World War, the Great Depression and societal changes in Canada. Spadina Museum opened in 1984 and completed an extensive interior restoration in 2010. Spadina's artifacts feature the family's contributions to the financial, business and cultural development of Toronto through an intact collection and archival holdings, music, art and decorative arts.
The site includes six structures: a three-storey large house built in 1866 and enlarged several times up until 1912/1913; a two-storey garage and chauffeur's residence built in 1909; a stable/gardener's cottage circa 1850; and a greenhouse built in 1913.
Spadina Museum provides visitors an opportunity to go back in time to a very unique period in Toronto's history. The site offers guided tours of the house and garden, school programs, changing exhibits and workshops, and also hosts one-of-a-kind special events throughout the year.
