A.C.T.'s acclaimed music-infused adaptation of Dickens' beloved tale returns, in a sumptuous production that's become one of the Bay Area's favorite holiday traditions. A large, lively cast tells the story of lonely old miser Ebenezer Scrooge, a bah-humbuggy sort who's shown a second chance by four ghosts who visit him one spooky Christmas Eve. A classic story of redemption and forgiveness, A Christmas Carol captures the true spirit and magic of the holiday season, especially in this imaginative version written by A.C.T.'s own artistic director Carey Perloff and alumnus Paul Walsh.

Acoustics in theater were not great. Singing was good, acting was somewhat mediocre. Show seemed rather dated to me, did not hold up well, in spite of the valiant efforts of the cast members. show was well choreographed and staged, some quite good voices. But it just didn't seem relevant to 2006, and the humor definitely did not hold up.
Quotes & Highlights
- In 1999, Time magazine voted Carousel the “Best Musical of the Century.”
The multi-award-winning Foothill Music Theatre presents Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical Carousel. Set in a small New England seaside town, the show follows the love story of Billy Bigelow, a smooth-talking carnival barker, and Julie Jordan, the spunky local factory worker he falls for. Forging new territory in musical theatre storytelling, this lush work from the Golden Era of Broadway features a superbly witty script from Hammerstein and boasts some of Rodgers’ most memorable tunes, including “If I Loved You,” “My Boy Bill,” the gorgeous “Carousel Waltz,” and the showstopping “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
Award-winning director Jay Manley helms this emotionally riveting take on Nicholas Hytner’s 1994 Tony Award-winning revival of the show.
