2017 Regional Theatre Tony Award Recipient Dallas Theater Center will present the annual hit production of the holiday classic A Christmas Carol at the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre.

Brad Leland, most commonly known from his role as Buddy Garrity in NBC's Friday Night Lights, as well as Bill O'Brien in HBO's Veep, will play Ebenezer Scrooge in the classic tale that follows a magical journey of hope and redemption.

A Christmas Carol begins on Nov. 22 with a Pay-What-You-Can performance benefitting the United Way of Puerto Rico and runs through Dec. 28. Press Night will be Nov. 29 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets to A Christmas Carol are on sale now at www.DallasTheaterCenter.org and by phone at (214) 880-0202.

"A Christmas Carol is a story filled with redemption and hope, and mixed with the most mischievous and colorful parts of literary tradition," said Lee Trull, Director and DTC's Director of New Play Development. "I am thrilled that my friend Brad Leland, of Friday Night Lights fame, will bring Scrooge's journey to our stage. After a life amassing wealth and secluding himself from all humanity, Scrooge is reminded that joy was once a palpable thing of his past, and that by opening his eyes to the pain and need of those in the present, he has a chance and hope of making a positive impact on the future."

Joining Leland in the cast are Diane and Hal Brierley Resident Acting Company members Ace Anderson (Hair, Inherit the Wind, Public Works Dallas The Tempest) as Topper/Young Marley/Second Gentleman; Chamblee Ferguson (Inherit the Wind, The Christians, Deferred Action) as Bob Cratchit; Tiana Kaye Johnson (Hair, Hood: The Robin Hood Musical Adventure, Electra) as Mrs. Dilber/Mrs. Fezziwig; Liz Mikel (Miller, Mississippi, Inherit the Wind, Bella: An American Tall Tale) as Mrs. Cratchit and Alex Organ (Miller, Mississippi, Inherit the Wind, Electra) as Fred/Undertaker's Man.

Additional cast members include Ian Ferguson (Hood: The Robin Hood Musical Adventure) as First Gentleman; Kristen Lee as Belle/Lucy; Beth Lipton (Hood: The Robin Hood Musical Adventure) as Ghost of Christmas Past; Will Power as Jacob Marley/Old Joe, Jahi Kearse as Mr. Fezziwig/Ghost of Christmas Present and Samantha Rat Rios as Martha Cratchit.
