Back for its 40th annual production, Charles Dickens' iconic holiday play returns to Segerstrom Stage, produced by South Coast Repertory. 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. Hal Landon Jr. returns to the role of Scrooge for his final year, and he'll be joined by the three Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, the Cratchitts and the Fezziwigs, as they all guide the miserly anithero to his true path.
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.
