This winter the Actors’ Conservatory Theatre will present its adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic tale, A Christmas Carol. The production will be directed by Bernard Baldan, a stage veteran of 25 years, and will include a complete cast of 31 youth and adult performers. Of the group of  actors working to bring this adaptation to life, 17 hail from 92130. Ranging from Christmas carolers to more prominent roles like the beloved Tiny Tim, performed by Luke Dane, the Carmel Valley cast members make up the majority of the ensemble.

The show’s music will be directed by Desha Crownover, and Erin Petersen is the director of choreography. The production’s running time will be approximately two hours and fifteen minutes, with an additional 15 minute for intermission. Performances will be held at the Lyceum Theatre at Horton Plaza from Dec. 11 through 20.
