Photo Flash: First Look at CTG/Second City's A CHRISTMAS CAROL: TWIST YOUR DICKENS in LA!

The world premiere of The Second City's "A Christmas Carol: Twist Your Dickens!," a hilarious take on Charles Dickens' classic Christmas tale, opens tomorrow, November 29 at the Center Theatre Group/Kirk Douglas Theatre at 8 p.m. and continues through December 30, 2012. Get a first look at the show in the photos below!

The Second City's "A Christmas Carol: Twist Your Dickens!" is written by Second City alums, Peter Gwinn (formerly of "The Colbert Report") and Bobby Mort (currently of "The Colbert Report") and is directed by yet another Second City alum, Marc Warzecha. The cast features Frank Caeti ("MADtv"), Larry Joe Campbell ("According to Jim"), Dan Castellaneta ("The Simpsons"), Amanda Blake Davis ("Second City Does Dallas" at the Dallas Theater Center), Brian Stepanek ("The Suite Life of Zack and Cody"), Jean Villepique ("Up All Night") and Ron West ("3rd Rock from the Sun").

With its trademark humor, irreverence and originality, The Second City, in a creative collaboration with CTG, is taking the classic Charles Dickens' Christmas tale and giving it a hearty twist. In addition to Scrooge (played by Ron West), the ever-morphing ensemble will bring the famous Victorian streets to frenzied life with Tiny Tim, that fat, plucked goose, all those know-it-all ghosts, a host of anachronistic characters and hilarious improvs which will have Dickens guffawing in his grave. The cast will be joined by an ever-changing stable of starry, drop-in special guests.
