Now over 40 years young, the South Coast Repertory production of Charles Dickens' iconic holiday play returns to Segerstrom Stage, adapted by Jerry Patch and directed by Hisa Takakuwa, starring SCR founding member Richard Doyle! Victorian London comes to Costa Mesa as we follow the journey of miserly lender Ebeneezer Scrooge as he discovers the true meaning of happiness in the iconic story of redemption.
What is the story?
Ever since Charles Dickens first penned A Christmas Carol in 1843, it has seen myriad stage adaptations across the world.and the popularity of this tale of redemption and second chances has seemingly never waned. From stage to screen, opera to one man show, it is one of the most influential Christmas shows and a traditional holiday outing that defines the joy of the Yuletide period for most of us. One man's journey from avarice and hatred takes him through three stages of his life, to show him the error of his ways; ultimately the story of Scrooge speaks out to each of us, as it is up to Scrooge himself (and by extension, us) to become the best person we can be.
