I enjoyed this production and I can't wait to bring my son when he's a little older. It's not too long; it starts earlier in the evening, and you're out at a decent time. The show was charming, though at times strange, with the random songs and...continued

A beautiful production with a terrific cast, including lots of younger actors(ages 8 to 13). The multi-generational audience loved the show, along with being part of a Christmas tradition.

I love Theater, and this provided all the excitement and glamor that theater represents. The actors were superb, and the staging and the artistry and the special effects were wonderful. Loved the whole experience!

While not especially true to the book, it was charming and fun, with some nice special effects. We thoroughly enjoyed it!

A ton off fun! I really enjoyed the Ghost of Christmases Yet to Come. This was very creatively done as was the set. All around, two thumbs up.

A.C.T. hits a holiday homerun with this excellent rendition of the classic Christmas Charles Dickins tale/parable. I highly recommend this to one and all.

The actors who played Scrooge and his housekeeper were superb. Their interchange was worth attending the play. I really enjoyed the way Scrooge was depicted as changing during each visit to Christmas past and present. He seemed to get involved...continued

LOVE. IT. period.

I really didn't have my hopes too high nor know exactly what I was in for. I wanted to try something new with my boyfriend and we were both excited once inside the venue. Very old SF. The play starts out with phenomenal...continued

I would recommend choosing any other Christmas concert or play. Try as I might, I couldn't get into the spirit of this production, which struck me as cutesy for its songs, costumes and effects (a flying acrobat-ghost, indeed!). This was definitely...continued

I liked this show a lot. A strong supporting cast which included many children, the actor (Carpenter) playing the major role of Scrooge really made the experience hit home. This was a great way to help me get into the spirit of the season.

An above-average staging of this holiday classic. I particularly liked the brisk pacing of the production and inventive use of staging and props. The acting was what one would expect from a Dickensian tale: mannered, vaguely British and Victorian....continued

The show seemed fine except the two seats we had at the balcony had obstucted views. They were the end two seats on the first row which were right behind the lights. The person sitting at one of the seats could not see the center part of the stage...continued

A.C.T.'s production of Christmas Carol is always fun and entertaining to watch - loved it. We sat in the second to last row in orchestra - great view.

I loved this production of A Christmas Carol. I hadn't seen it in several years and expected the traditional version but this was a new and certainly improved play. Not that the original one isn't good too but this was fresh, funny, great...continued
