From the venue:

This production marks the Alliance’s 34th season of A CHRISTMAS CAROL and the 2nd for its reimagined new staging, featuring stunning new costumes, beautiful live music, exciting puppetry, and a reconceived set design. Since last year’s premiere, the creative team has continued to develop the new version, adding more music and developing the characters. As one of Atlanta’s most treasured holiday traditions, A CHRISTMAS CAROL brings to life the magic and joy of the holiday season. This production is adapted by David H. Bell and directed by Leora Morris.

“Every year about this time I start to hunger to hear this story again,” said Christopher Moses, the Alliance’s Dan Reardon Director of Education & Associate Artistic Director. “It makes plain what I tend to forget or take for granted through much of the year and reminds me that no matter how isolated or cynical one has become, there is always the possibility for transformation, the chance to replace our stony hearts with generous, loving ones. Gathering together to share in this story has become much more than simply tradition. It's taken on the air of ritual, affording us the chance to reaffirm certain profound truths about our shared humanity. One of those truths is the most basic of all: we need each other.”

In A CHRISTMAS CAROL, Ebenezer Scrooge, an old man well-known for his miserly ways, is visited by ghosts offering him a chance at a better future – his old partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future – who teach him it is never too late to change. The beloved Dickens classic comes to life in this Broadway-scale production with an all-star cast.

Leading the cast for the second year as Ebenezer Scrooge is acclaimed Atlanta actor Andrew Benator. Benator’s credits include previous productions of A CHRISTMAS CAROL playing Scrooge and Jacob Marley. Additional Alliance Theatre credits include Everybody, Small Mouth Sounds,One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and Troubadour.
