Christmas Carol Experience at Canfield Casino
All are invited to experience the magic of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” during an upcoming event called The Christmas Carol Experience.
This immersive Christmasthemed event is scheduled for 4 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 15 at the historic Canfield Casino, set in Congress Park in Saratoga Springs.
The evening, which is meant to be enjoyed by the entire family, will feature Christmas carols in the parlor, fine ale, wine, spiced cider and hot cocoa, dance variations from The Nutcracker by the School of the Arts at The National Museum of Dance, holiday stories read to them by the real life Snow White & Rose Red of the Amazon TV series The Adventures of Snow White & Rose Red, and a theatrical journey through the casino’s upper floors with excerpts from “A Christmas Carol” lead by the ghost of Christmas past.
“A lot of the drama will play out there,” said Nicole Coady, who is producing this first-ever event along with Jonathan Albert and Stephanie Markowich.
After collaborating on previous local events in the past, “We all had such a good time working together that we thought it would be fun for the three of us to produce something,” Coady said.
Through a relationship with the Canfield Casino and Saratoga Springs History Museum, the trio was presented with an opportunity to use the historical, Victorian-style space in downtown Saratoga Springs.
“We decided it would be a fun thing to do,” said Coady, who hopes guests will take the chance to step back in time to a very merry Victorian Christmas party.
Looking ahead, the organizers may consider making the event an annual occasion. “This year we’re having fun, we’re going to see how it goes,” she continued, “and hopefully, it’d be wonderful if it could turn into a Saratoga tradition.”
The three partners would like to produce other similar events in the future as well.
Tickets to The Christmas Carol Experience are $40 each if purchased before Dec. 1, or $45 from
Dec. 2 through 14. They are available online at eventbrite.com under “The Christmas Carol Experience.”
A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit the Saratoga Springs History Museum, which is located in the Canfield Casino.
