  1. Final Week: A Christmas Carol — Cap’s resident theatre company, Exit 22 productions, presents this highly inventive circus adaptation of the classic Dickens tale, A Christmas Carol. The show features an Edwardian company of shabby and third rate travelling players and clowns about to enact the Dickens story. The troupe soon discovers that the actors playing Scrooge and Tiny Tim have abandoned the tour; so the prop person eagerly volunteers for the part of Tim while the cynical stage manager must be forcibly drafted to play the old miser. A perfect show for all ages and the season. Show runs until November 27
