Kansas City’s favorite holiday tradition is back for its 36th season, presented in the magnificent new Spencer Theatre!

Complete with lively musical numbers, ornate costumes, and dashing stagecraft, Dickens’ classic tale of hope and redemption continues to remind us what’s really worth celebrating – at the holidays, or any time!
