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.

never have I seen so much body fat jiggle in so many different ways - and this isn't a good thing! AIDA is an absolute big wet sloppy mess, from the out of pitch "boys" chorus to the the box off and house management. If this is "talent" that hails from Sac State or Davis you may as well just get jobs in the government and spare us all the pain in the theatre. I can only speak about the first act because we all left at intermission it was so not ready to be seen by any other human. There are no credits given in the program about anyone's background, so I guess this is everyone's first show and it shows. the 3 leads, Sara Logan, Jacob Montoya and Kate Richardson, do sing well, but could use some brush up on acting. Kate seems to think mugging is acting, Sara & Jacob seem stiff. Though these two sing well, I would find it hard to look up to Jacob as a big strong leader of much. He's kinda "soft" and short but does have great vocals. Ryan Allen playing Mereb couldn't be more gay and was a big turn off. The fashion show segment of "My Stronest Suit" must have been donated by the Salvation Army, there was nothing to get excited about here. the director, Carly Sisto, needs to do something else with her time. Speaking of time, so should the musical director, Christopher Cook, could you beat the score to death any more so it drags any slower? And just why Carley would you approach a musical with Nubians that are lily white? This production was just a mess mash of people on stage whitout direction, without talent and without voice. We really thought it was a production done by the local homeless shelter. The few costumes where unimaginative and lifeless, which was in par with everything else. Even the program was copied in poor black & white ink with streaks. Low budget? NO BUDGET. i would NEVER see any type of show by this company. Oh, phone number? They never answer the phone, no voice mail or even an out going message. Music Circus, you have nothing to fear and no local talent from this production to cast from. My review could be seen as harsh to many, but when you put youreslf up and out in public and charge a price you need to come up with the goods or be prepared otherwise. And this is clearly a case of otherwise. And when looking at Green Valley's season 3 of the 5 shows are downers. Now, unless this is what they want to be know for, which i think they will be regardless of what shows are picked, they need shows more appealing to the patrons.
