This holiday season a group of 26 area youth will join the Alley Theatre’s production of A Christmas Carol – A Ghost Story of Christmas . These young actors will be working with the Alley’s Company of Actors to tell the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge’s journey with the three ghosts that visit him on Christmas Eve. More than half of the cast is comprised of young actors. The cast members are from various neighborhoods in the Houston metropolitan area including Memorial, Cypress, Tomball, Katy and more.
Houston’s seasonal favorite is described by the Houston Press as having “Spectacular London sets … spiced with the usual fog and a twist on the ghosts past, present, and future.” Family audiences can enjoy this colorful, comical, and music-filled production. Magical and heartwarming, this unforgettable theatrical production of A Christmas Carol – A Ghost Story of Christmas instills a powerful message about redemption and the true spirit of the holiday season. Recommended for general audiences, children six and older.
