“It was a cause for celebration when, for the first time in more than 20 months, we were finally able to return to live performances at the Ahmanson Theatre with this spectacular production of ‘A Christmas Carol’,” said Center Theatre Group Managing Director / CEO Meghan Pressman. “That makes it all the more heartbreaking to cancel these remaining performances.”
“We are grateful to all the theatregoers who reanimated the Ahmanson with their energy and enthusiasm over the past few weeks and we share the disappointment with the company of ‘A Christmas Carol’ that this magical production could not have been experienced by so many others. To all ticketholders, we will be in contact to offer full refunds or arrange credit for future shows. We thank all of our patrons for their continued support and look forward to seeing you back in the theatre soon.”
