Come see a Christmas classic in one of the San Francisco theaters this December.

At the popular nonprofit A.C.T. (American Conservatory Theater), tickets are on sale for seasonal showings of “A Christmas Carol” through December 28. For a unique and unforgettable experience, you can see how this familiar story takes shape in a talented and unique take on the original.
