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.

If you like 50's - 60's style rock n' roll, this musical will be a real treat. With just a piano and bass ( no percussion ), both of whom are excellent,the music is all about vocals and harmonies a la classic early rock. Well - rehearsed performance with strong characters and lots of cute bits to lighten things up between songs.Very talented small cast makes the 90 minutes pass quickly.Think of it more as a terrific concert with a little story-line .
