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.

This radically original fusion of movement and theater explores 100 years in the life of North Beach nightspot Tosca Café, conjuring a world in which love, betrayal, and hope emerge from the shadows and disappear with the clink of a glass. The Tosca Project brings world-renowned dancers from San Francisco Ballet, including prima ballerina Sabina Allemann, together with such acclaimed actors as The Overcoat's Peter Anderson and A.C.T.'s own Jack Willis (Rock 'n' Roll). Loosely structured around the themes of Puccini's Tosca, this imaginative new work is gorgeously choreographed, achingly moving, and scored with some of the best music ever made, from Hendrix to Stravinsky.
