The Second City’s Twist Your Dickens

Experience Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol like never before—with this holiday favorite from The Second City! The legendary comedy troupe brings its infamous improvisational skills and sketch comedy mastery to the timeless tale of Ebenezer Scrooge. Journey through this wicked parody of “the night before Christmas” with Tiny Tim, three ridiculous ghosts, and a brilliant cast of The Second City’s funniest comedians. Complete with an abundance of audience participation, this seasonal satire—written by former The Colbert Report writers Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort—is the perfect holiday event.

Recommended for age 16 and up. Please note that this performance uses strobe lighting and smoke effects.

Going to the 8 p.m. show on New Year's Eve? Your ticket also includes the Kennedy Center Grand Foyer Party, with festive dancing to great bands, a countdown to midnight, a big balloon drop, and more.
