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.

Great fun . . . well acted, well sung, good orchestra. My 12 year old daughter enjoyed it very much, as did I. The seats were excellent -- orchestra, on the aisle, about half way back. It's really nice to be able to see this caliber of a show on the Peninsula -- without paying for parking and fighting traffic!

Based on the film Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Written by Dale Launer and Stanley Shapiro & Paul Henning
Take a trip to the French Riviera with the riotously funny, Tony-nominated musical comedy, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Based on the popular 1988 film, this is the story of two very funny con men who try to out-con each other. They soon find out that the small French town the live in isn't big enough to support two filthy, shameless, lying, cheating, dirty rotten scoundrels so they setup a challenge. The first person to successfully "clean out" a naive American heiress can stay in town and the loser must leave. The battle between them will take you on a hilarious adventure filled with twists, turns and great big laughs!
