Photo Flash: A CHRISTMAS CAROL Returns to Ford's Theatre For The Holiday Season

Ford's Theatre Director Paul R. Tetreault announced that acclaimed Washington actor Craig Wallace will return to Ford's to perform the role of Ebenezer Scrooge for the company's holiday production of A Christmas Carol. Performances of the classic Charles Dickens story begin November 15 and continue for a six-and-a-half-week engagement through December 30, 2018. This "musically high-spirited" and "infectiously jolly" (The Washington Post) production is adapted by Michael Wilson and directed by Michael Baron.

Join the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future as they lead Ebenezer Scrooge on a journey of transformation and redemption. The production captures the magic and joy of Dickens's Yuletide classic with abundant caroling, spooky stage tricks and cheerful dancing for the holiday season.

"The timeless message of A Christmas Carol-that every day is an opportunity to begin again, to open your heart and to show compassion-is an inspiration that our fast-paced world seems to need more and more. With each performance of this 175-year-old play, I am reinvigorated by remembering that there is a chance to provide goodwill in our everyday encounters," said Craig Wallace.

For the 10th year in a row, the company of A Christmas Carol will devote time and energy to raising money for a Washington charity dedicated to eradicating homelessness, hunger and poverty. Their efforts coupled with our audience's generous support have raised more than $735,822 for local charities including House of Ruth, N Street Village, Bread for the City, Covenant House Washington, Food and Friends, Martha's Table, Miriam's Kitchen, So Others Might Eat and Thrive DC. This year's Washington charity recipient will be announced by November 15.

A Christmas Carol is made possible by our 2018-2019 Season Sponsor: Chevron. This production also is made possible by the following Underwriters: AT&T, Charter Communications, Exxon Mobil Corporation, Liberty Mutual, National Retail Federation and United Parcel Service.
