I have seen A Christmas Carol perfromed many places around the world and one of my favorites is right here in Atlanta at the Allaince Theatre! It is also one of my husbands favorite holiday places to go.
I have seen this production many times and we started my son at the age of 3 seeing it, and he loved it. The main factor for that age was we needed to know if he would sit that long and he did. We showed him the Mickey version on DVD before we came. We also always did the afternoon show so he would not be tired.
This show is about 2.5 hours long with intermission at about an hour and a half. We saw many young children here. The play is not scary for young children except maybe the third ghost who comes down from the ceiling on the stage. I would also let your child know sometimes actors play more than one role.
The new set is amazing! It turns around so they can use it for multiple scenes.
They just added the new Coca Cola Stage. It cost $32 million dollars and moves the audience 15 feet closer to the stage. The seats are wider and very comfortable.
They have 2 sound proof rooms you can bring your child in if they are needing to move around more or being loud. You will still be able to see and watch the show from in there.
