A new immersive experience is coming to the Mathias Ham House this holiday season. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens will take place on Dec. 10-11.

The live performances will play out through the entirety of the house with the audience following from room-to-room as the story unfolds, creating a new experience for visitors.

Live performances will be at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10, with the final matinee at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 11. Tickets are limited, so purchasing tickets early is recommended. There will also be a virtual performance available to purchase online.

This version of the play will be directed by Lenore Howard of Fly-By-Night Productions and Craig Schaefer with LC Productions will serve as the executive producer and creative director for the recorded version.

A Christmas Carol is made possible by the City of Dubuque Arts & Cultural Affairs Special Project Grant.
