Every schoolchild knows the classic tale told by Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol, and this year the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco brings new life into the traditional holiday story with musical performances from November 30 to December 24. From miserly Uncle Scrooge to precious Tiny Tim, the characters in A Christmas Carol hold a warm spot in our hearts. The American Conservatory Theater’s version of the tale of holidays past, present and future includes the addition of lively music, gorgeous costumes, a large and talented cast and of course, the wonderfully spooky ghosts that must show Scrooge the true meaning of the Christmas season. A Bay Area favorite for the holidays, A Christmas Carol is a holiday treat that the whole family will enjoy. The American Conservatory Theater is located at 415 Geary Street in San Francisco, and performances take place several nights each week in December, along with numerous matinees on weekends and select weekdays.
