This production is directed by Bill Chessman, a long time, Bay Area producer, director, actor, and author. "This is a wonderful adaptation of the film that retains all the warmth and drama, and it has long been a sentimental favorite of mine. We have an excellent and versatile cast who bring their own loving spin to each of the characters that they portray. And, as I always say, the secret to directing is good casting!"

Producing this production is Suzan Lorraine. Suzan started in theatre in a 4th grade production of A Christmas Carol and since has acted, stage managed, run lights and sound, and directed in a number of Bay Area theatres and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Over the last few years, she has also been involved with her husband's radio dramas - mostly having fun making noises to round the audio spectrum of the shows. She has also been the Production Director at Chanticleers and is delighted to support the theatre with this show
