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
Henry V is Shakespeare’s compelling account of the young king’s early days on the throne of England. The French, having heard about Prince Hal’s decadent lifestyle, have seized English lands in Normandy and sent the new king a box of tennis balls to pass his time. Little do they realize that the former prince has set aside his profligate ways and become a no-nonsense monarch.
Despite overwhelming military odds, he leads his troops into France to retake the stolen lands. Treachery, vitriol and passions culminate on the field of Agincourt where in 1415, little more than 5,000 English, mostly archers and foot soldiers faced overwhelming odds as more than five times their number of French forces including thousands of knights, bore down on them.
But Henry V is not all war and treachery. Lighthearted moments are provided by some of the king’s soldiers and by the King's own tongue-tied attempts to woo the French princess.
