Northside Theatre Company presents its 31st annual production of the holiday classic A Christmas Carol with innovative style. Coldhearted and miserly Ebenezer Scrooge learns the meaning of Christmas after he is visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, Christmas present and Christmas yet to come. Northside's production has been hailed for its impeccable staging and high-end production values. It features all the traditional characters you know and love, plus the best of Dickens' powerful narrative as delivered in turns by the entire cast, forming a compelling Greek-style Chorus that punctuates the author's message of charity and redemption. The Mercury News has called this the best Christmas Carol in the Bay Area. Learn More

From the minute we entered the small venue theater, we were greeted by the manager who gave us our tickets. We then found 3 seats and due to the small venue, any seat really would have been great.The manager then came in before the start of the play and was very welcoming and congenial. The play was wonderful, in terms of storyline and acting. After the show, the actors were greeting patrons in the lobby which was so nice. I would recommend this play to all adult audiences since I think the content may be lost on a younger audience.
One of Marc's best friends, Serge, has just bought a very expensive painting. It's about five feet by four, all white with white diagonal lines. To Marc, the painting is a joke, but Serge insists Marc doesn't have the proper standard to judge the work. Another friend, Ivan, allows himself to be pulled into this disagreement. Eager to please, Ivan tells Serge he likes the painting. Lines are drawn and these old friends square off over the canvas, using it as an excuse to relentlessly batter one another over various failures. As their arguments become more personal, they border on destroying their friendships. At the breaking point, Serge hands Marc a felt tip pen and dares him: "Go on." This is where the friendship is finally tested, and the aftermath of action, and its reaction, affirms the power of those bonds.
