It’s ACT’s 44th production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, adapted by Gregory A. Falls. Directed by Kelly Kitchens, this celebrated adaptation follows the original Dickens tale taking audiences along on Ebenezer Scrooge’s transformational journey through time. Three ghostly visitors help Scrooge get into the holiday spirit, leading him on a trip through Christmases past, present, and future.

“How wonderful it is to return again to Dickens and his authentic impulse which calls to the best parts of ourselves. This tradition, 44 years in the making, grows in power with each new rendition, infused not only by the actors and artisans who work with an open heart, but also reinvigorated by those who have loved this story, and love to share it,” Artistic Director John Langs says.

NOTE: No one under the age of five will be permitted.
