Celebrate the holiday season with
A Christmas Carol
at the Whaley House
Tuesday, December 11
Join SOHO and the Whaley House Museum staff for a performance of Charles Dickens' timeless holiday ghost story, A Christmas Carol, set in the historic and haunted Whaley House. The classic story of Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet-To-Come, will unfold as you go from room to room in the historic 1857 brick mansion known as "America's Most Haunted." Although not a traditional tour of the Whaley House, A Christmas Carol is sure to bring holiday fun for the whole family, and who knows? You might even encounter a Ghost of Christmas Past.
About the Whaley House
The Whaley House was built in 1857 by San Diego pioneer Thomas Whaley and served as the Whaley family home, San Diego's first commercial theater, an early County Courthouse, and Whaley's general mercantile store. The museum's haunted reputation dates back 150 years to when the Whaley family first occupied the building and reported hearing heavy footsteps moving about the house, as though made by the boots of a large man.
About A Christmas Carol
First published in 1843, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens tells the story of mean, stingy Ebenezer Scrooge's transformation to a kinder, gentler man after a series of supernatural visitations, and met with instant success and critical acclaim. According to historian Ronald Hutton, the current state of observance of Christmas is largely the result of a mid-Victorian revival of the holiday spearheaded by A Christmas Carol.
