Ford’s Theatre Director Paul R. Tetreault announced that acclaimed Washington actor Craig Wallace will return to Ford’s to reprise the role of Ebenezer Scrooge for the company’s holiday production of A Christmas Carol. Performances of the classic Charles Dickens story begin November 18, 2022 and continue for a six-week engagement through December 31, 2022. This “musically high-spirited” and “infectiously jolly” (The Washington Post) production is adapted by Michael Wilson and directed by Michael Baron.
“The fully staged production of this holiday tradition returns with the revelry and magical moments our audiences have come to love. With Craig Wallace leading this timeless story of redemption and transformation, we can experience the true spirit of Christmas on our stage,” said Paul R. Tetreault, director of Ford’s Theatre. “We are especially excited to welcome back our youth company after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.”
Tickets for in-person performances of A Christmas Carol are now on sale and range from $26 to $132. The performance runs approximately 2 hours with one intermission. It is abundant with caroling, spooky stage tricks and cheerful dancing for the holiday season.
