Blackhawks hall-of-famer Bobby Hull will perform in front of fans one more time, and help make a sick child's dream come true.

But this show is at the Goodman Theater, not the ice rink.

Hull and 11-year-old Charles Finch, who suffers from Hodgkin's lymphoma, will join the cast of A Christmas Carol at the Goodman Theatre for one night, December 14, through a partnership with the Make a Wish Foundation and the Chicago Blackhawks.

"I am thrilled to play such a special role in A Christmas Carol and share the stage with a star like Charles," said Hull. "The Blackhawks and Goodman Theater are significant parts of Chicago's great tradition, making it an honor to be bringing the two together for this night."

Finch always dreamed of becoming a stage actor, and Hull is natural in front of a crowd.

The temporary actors will don costumes that were specially designed for their performance, appear in select scenes with the cast and sing the "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" at the close of the show. 

This year's performance of A Christmas Carol marks the Goodman Theatre's first partnership with the Chicago Blackhawks
