What: This modern-day, Vancouver-themed retelling of A Christmas Carol was a beloved annual mainstay of the SFU Woodwards cultural program for a decade, ending with triumphant final run during the 2019 festive season. But don't despair if you missed it: they've brought it back as a special online-only digital show for 2020, so you can enjoy it in the comfort and safety of your own home.

There will also be some special extras from the cast to enjoy. All proceeds from the show will directly support the performers and musicians as well as the Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival.
