Houston's seasonal favorite that the Houston Press described as having "Spectacular London sets ...the inimitable Dickens' tale - spiced with the usual fog and an unusual twist on the ghosts past, present and future." A Christmas Carol - A Ghost Story of Christmas returns this year with a re-telling of Charles Dickens' classic story, that follows Ebenezer Scrooge's journey with the three ghostly spirits that visit him on Christmas Eve. A Christmas Carol instills a powerful message about redemption and the spirit of the holiday season, through a dazzling production created by Tony Award-winning scenic designer Tony Straiges (Alley's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), with costumes by Alejo Vietti (Alley's Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps, Our Town, Rock 'n' Roll, Mauritius), lighting by Rui Rita (Alley's Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps, Sherlock Holmes and the Crucifer of Blood, Eurydice, Cyrano de Bergerac), and original music by John Gromada (Alley's Our Town, Subject to Fits, Treasure Island, The Pillowman). Recommended for general audiences.
