A.C.T.’s Geary Theater

Running Time: 1 hour 50 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission

Following another successful run in 2019, A.C.T. welcomes back the Bay Area’s favorite holiday tradition, A Christmas Carol. Featuring a lively cast of dozens, delightful music, gorgeous costumes, and deliciously spooky ghosts, this version of A Christmas Carol, adapted by Paul Walsh and Carey Perloff, stays true to the heart of Dickens’s timeless story of redemption and brings a playful sensibility to his rich language. A Christmas Carol is a cornerstone of the A.C.T. repertory and has become a holiday tradition for families around the Bay Area.

We welcome children age 5 and over into the theater. If you have questions, please contact the Box Office at 415.749.2228. All patrons must have a ticket—no babes in arms.
