Event description

Description

Lougheed House is thrilled to welcome back "Charles Dickens" to once again tell his famous story, A Christmas Carol, in the warmth and seasonally decorated splendour of our Victorian home, because "nothing in the world is so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour."

Arrive for 6:30 to buy yourself a classic Victorian cocktail from our bar, tour our delightfully decorated (by local interior designers) 1891 House and then settle in for our third-annual live reading by Steven Méthot.

Steven Méthot is a Calgary writer, storyteller and musician. His previous performances of A Christmas Carol at Lougheed House have sold out.

Steven has created this one-man portrayal of Dickens's soiree. As Charles Dickens, he will recount the story of Scrooge, the Cratchit Family, the ghosts and one magical night.

Steven will be accompanied by three talented musicians (who with him form the quartet “Diminished Fifth”), Natalie Manzer, Karen and Michael Pollock on harps, flute, concertina, fiddle, guitar and voice.

Note: Steven's performance runs 1 hour & 45 minutes without intermission. It is appropriate for ages 10 and up.

Lougheed House Christmas is our popular annual programming where the House's rooms are custom-designed anew each year by our dedicated team of professional interior designers who volunteer their skill and vision on our behalf. Brimming and a-glow with Christmas trees, ornaments, lights, furniture, candles and decorative items throughout three floors, Lougheed House at Christmas is a popular "must see" for Calgary families. This year's theme of "family traditions" has been artfully designed by Calgary interior designers Selina Austin, Ana Cummings, Rebekah McEwan Swantje Macke-Monteiro, Lea Romanowski, Alison Rose, Beatta Ryback and Chantel C Snyder.
