This little theater produces great plays that often match those of the major theaters in San Francisco. This play was another of those great performances. The casting was excellent. The acting was great and the directing was really great too. ...continued

Inventive, engaging, wonderful small theater experience. They took a familiar play and brought it to life. Both my grandsons really liked it.

Description

A ghost story by Charles Dickens. Come see the show that the Mercury News has called “the best production of A Christmas Carol in the Bay Area!”

Northside Theatre Company presents its 27th annual production of this holiday event. This excellent stage adaptation of the Dickens’ classic captures all the power, humor and warmth this ageless tale has to offer. It is a great Christmas present for the entire family. This is the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a lonely miser, who, through the help of spirits and visions from his past, present and future, finds a second chance to become a loving, generous, kind human being.
