Actors Theatre of Louisville announces Fifth Third Bank's A Christmas Carol, based on the book by Charles Dickens, adapted by Barbara Field and directed by Drew Fracher. Celebrate the warmth of the holidays with Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future. A beloved tradition for more than four decades and the nation's second-longest continuously running production of A Christmas Carol, Actors Theatre's rendition of Dickens' classic tale is brought to life with visual splendor and joyous music. A Christmas Carol will play November 20-December 23 in the Pamela Brown Auditorium.
Actors Theatre is thrilled to welcome both veteran collaborators and new faces to this year's production. Drew Fracher returns as the director of Dickens' holiday favorite.

They are joined by members of the 2018-19 Professional Training Company: Amber Avant, David Ball, Avery Deutsch, Rebby Yuer Foster, Josh Fulton, Jonathan Moises Olivares, Ash Patlan, Brett Schultz, Julian Socha and Reagan Stovenour.
