The holiday show also recently announced the Bob Cratchit Free Ticket Program for individuals working Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday, Hanukkah, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, or Kwanzaa. Applicants are eligible to receive a single free ticket for a performance November 8-20.

Tony nominee Michael Arden directs A Christmas Carol, which he conceived with Tony-nominated designer Dane Laffrey. Mays plays all the roles in the Charles Dickens Christmas classic featuring a script adapted by Mays, Susan Lyons, and Arden.

This version of A Christmas Carol made its world premiere in 2018 at Los Angeles’ Geffen Playhouse. In winter 2020, a film version, produced by Hunter Arnold, was released to benefit partner theatres during the height of the pandemic shutdown.

The creative team also includes lighting designer Ben Stanton, projection designer Lucy Mackinnon, sound designer Joshua D. Reid, hair and makeup designer Cookie Jordan, puppet designer John Kristiansen, casting director Stephen Kopel, and associate director and production stage manager Justin Scribner.
