Christmas Carol
Hal Landon

Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, Orange County’s beloved holiday tradition, returns to South Coast Repertory for its 29th season. Adapted for the stage by Jerry Patch and directed by John-David Keller, Dickens’ classic tale runs on the Segerstrom Stage from Nov. 29 through Dec. 27.

Hal Landon Jr., who has never missed a season since he originated the role of Ebenezer Scrooge in 1980, returns as the world’s most celebrated miser.

A Christmas Carol was first published in 1843 as a novella and quickly became a perennial holiday favorite. The story of love and redemption remains one of Charles Dickens’ most widely recognized and popular creations. On Christmas Eve, penny-pinching Ebenezer Scrooge is his usual miserly self, chasing off solicitors for the poor, chastising his sole employee, Bob Cratchit, for wanting to take off Christmas Day and insulting his nephew Fred for celebrating a holiday that “has never put a penny in anyone’s pocket.”

But that night, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his dead partner, who portends the arrival of three spirits who will show him the desolate path he has chosen and offer him a chance to correct his ways.
