Shaw Festival cancels A Christmas Carol performances

CKTB - NEWS - Bah Humbug Christmas Carol

Jacob Marley will not be rattling chains in Niagara-On-The-Lake this Christmas.

The Shaw Festival has cancelled their upcoming performances of A Christmas Carol due to the ongoing pandemic.

The show has been a staple of the Christmas season at Shaw since 2017.

With this latest cancellation, the entire 2020 season has been scrapped, but officials say plans are already underway for next year and they hope to make an announcement soon.

Christmas Carol ticket holders will have the full value of their tickets held on their account.

Box office representatives will be in touch to discuss options such as leaving the money in the account for future shows, making a charitable donation, or issuing a full refund.
