Photos: First Look at A CHRISTMAS CAROL at Ford's Theatre

AcclaimedWashington actor Craig Wallace returns to Ford's Theatre to perform the role of Ebenezer Scrooge for the company's holiday production of "A Christmas Carol." Performances of the classic Charles Dickensplay began November 16 and continue for a six-week engagement through December 31, 2017. This "musically high-spirited" and "infectiously jolly" (The Washington Post) production is adapted by Michael Wilson, directed by Michael Baron. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

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.

Craig Wallace was most recently featured at Ford's as Willy Loman in "Death of a Salesman" and in productions of "The Guard," "Driving Miss Daisy," "Necessary Sacrifices" and others. Additional recent credits include productions of Mosaic Theater Company's "Satchmo at the Waldorf," "All the Way" at Arena Stage and "Stage Kiss" at Round House Theatre, among others.

"A Christmas Carol" also features Lauren Williams as Belle, Michael Bunce as Bob Cratchit, Rayanne Gonzales as the Ghost of Christmas Present, James Konicek as Jacob Marley and Justine "Icy" Moral as the Ghost of Christmas Past, with Jonathan Atkinson, Ryan Burke, Maria Egler, Rick Hammerly, Yesenia Iglesias, Eben K. Logan, Gregory Maheu, Amy McWilliams, Christopher Mueller, Stephen F. Schmidt, Melissa Victor and Jaysen Wright.

The young cast of "A Christmas Carol" (roles rotate every other performance) includes Malcolm Fuller and Nathan Pham as Tiny Tim, with Tad Clifton, Ainsley Deegan, Penelope Gallagher, Lindsey Gattuso, Sophia Greene, Jeremiah Hasty, Antonio LaNave, Sarah Kathryn Makl, Reid Murphy, Serena Parrish, Kashvi Ramani and Cailin Russell.

Designs for "A Christmas Carol" include Scenic Designer Lee Savage's striking iron work, which evokes London's Covent Garden marketplace. The cast is outfitted in Alejo Vietti's festive Victorian costumes. The design team also includes Lighting Design by Rui Rita, Original Music and Sound Design by Josh Schmidt, Choreography by Shea Sullivan, Wig Design by Charles G. LaPointe, Choral Direction by Jay Crowder and Dialects by Rachel Hirshorn-Johnston.
