The holidays are alive with quintessential Victoria spirit at Craigdarroch Castle.

Once again, the castle will be home to Jason Steven’s popular one-month production of Charles Dickens’ 1843 classic, A Christmas Carol.

Stevens presents the tale of ghosts, regret, love and Christmas redemption in an hour-long intimate performance set in the castle’s dance hall. The tour-de-force performance has become a much loved classic at the castle and takes place Dec. 16 and 17 at 7 p.m., and Dec. 20 and 24 at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Also premiering this December is Radio, Mistletoe and My Man Godfrey by Launch Pad Theatre.

A fresh and festive flip of the 1936 screwball comedy, My Man Godfrey tells the story of a sprightly socialite who, during an unscrupulous Christmas scavenger hunt, hires a drifter as the family butler only to fall in love with him (much to his dismay). The show runs Dec. 27 to 30 at 6:30 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. for a short tour to the dance hall in which the performance takes place.

Tickets for both shows are $20 and are available at thecastle.ca or by calling 250-592-5323.
