Take a break from the Christmas shopping, stop writing the cards (or ditch the effort altogether and post your holiday greetings through Facebook) and get over to Actors Theatre for another of Louisville’s Christmas traditions: the annual production of A Christmas Carol.
It’s the story you grew up with. The story published by Charles Dickens in 1843. The story with over thirty stage adaptations (including a Broadway musical) and a dozen movie versions (including those of Mickey and Muppet fame).
The Actors Theatre script, adapted by Barbara Field and directed by Drew Fracher, follows the traditional thrust of the book.
Take the familiar journey with Ebenezer Scrooge as he discovers the true meaning of Christmas with help from the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Christmas Yet to Come.
A Christmas Carol, sponsored by Fifth Third Bank, runs now through December 23rd. Tickets start at $30 and are available online, in person at the Actors Theatre box office (316 W. Main) or by calling 502-584-1205.
