Last season’s critically acclaimed, world premiere hit Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol returns to Rubicon Theatre Company with Broadway veterans Peter Van Norden (RTC’s Copenhagen) and Emmy Award-winner Joe Spano (“NCIS,” RTC’s Bucky and Sylvia) as they reprise their roles in this innovative, but faithful retelling of the holiday classic.

Adapted by Producing Artistic Director Karyl Lynn Burns and directed by Brian McDonald, the 25-member cast features many of the same actors from the original production that earned a “Critic’s Choice” in the Los Angeles Times and rave reviews from Ventura County Star, CASA Magazine, VIDA Magazine and the Ventura Breeze. Presented as a play with music, this dynamic and compelling stage version of the novel incorporates highly theatrical elements with characters playing inanimate objects and animals on a multi-level set much in the style of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s landmark production of The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby. Back by popular demand it opens on Saturday, December 10 at 7:00 p.m. and runs until Dec.24.
