All remaining performances of “A Christmas Carol” at the Ahmanson Theatre were canceled Tuesday due to continuing issues with COVID-19 within the production.

Last week, Center Theatre Group announced the cancellation of performances through Dec. 26 due to COVID cases detected within the company. The balance of the shows, which were scheduled to run through Jan. 1, were scrubbed Tuesday.

“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,”’ CTG Managing Director/CEO Meghan Pressman said in a statement. “That makes it all the more heartbreaking to cancel these remaining performances.

“We are grateful to all the theater-goers 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 ticket holders, 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 theater soon.”

Details of the COVID cases within the show’s company were not provided. The show starred Bradley Whitford, Kate Burton and Alex Newell. Performances began Dec. 1.

Ticket holders will be contacted, but they can also reach out to CTG at or 213-972-4400 or in person at the CTG box office at the Music Center, 135 N. Grand Ave.
