Do you have a special story to tell? Join GeNarrations, a seven-week personal narrative writing workshop for adults age 55+. During workshops, participants write stories about their lives based on themes from the plays on stage. Currently, the Goodman works with more than 100 participants in spaces on Chicago’s north, west and south sides, as well as in the Alice Rapoport Center for Education and Engagement. Below, GeNarrations participant Barbara Ketter recounts a special Christmas past:
It was 1978: Grease was on the big screen, Jimmy Carter in the White House and the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack topped the charts for 24 weeks. The world has certainly changed since A Christmas Carol premiered on the Goodman stage that year, yet the production has remained a Chicago standard. As Scrooge reflects on his own past, the Goodman is thrilled to look back over the past 40 years of A Christmas Carol.
