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.

One of the worst uninspired shows I have ever seen.
Quotes & Highlights
- Winner of two 2006 Tony Awards
- "One helluva show!" --New York Times
- "In this dark and dazzling reinvention, Sweeney Todd stakes its claim as the gold standard for the next hundred years." —Rolling Stone
The hit Broadway revival of Sondheim's musical thriller arrives at A.C.T.. In this visionary and reimagined production of Sweeney Todd, the legendary demon barber of Fleet Street still serves up his justice vigilante-style, but director John Doyle has created an edgier, stripped-down staging of Sondheim's masterpiece complete with a multitalented cast of actors playing all the instruments onstage. The intimate result delivers wicked pleasure in a chilling evening of theater that "burrows into your thoughts with a poisoned seductiveness" (New York Times). With its naughty humor and infectious melodies, Sweeney Todd knows how to show you a bloody good time!
