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.

Reviews & Ratings
Show Boat covers one of the most dramatic eras in American history, from Reconstruction to the Roaring '20s. Against this panorama unfolds a saga of romance, racial tension and family survival with one of the greatest scores ever written. Songs include "Old Man River," "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man" and "Bill."
This is Broadway by the Bay's premiere production of the Hal Prince version of this classic and the show's 80th anniversary. Show Boat is a valentine to America and show business!
Music by Jerome Kern
Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Based on the novel Show Boat by Edna Ferber
