Meet the Cast

Artist to Artist

Costume Designer Alejo Vietti

Meet the Director

Artistic Associate Rachel Alderman

“Watching Scrooge transform and grow is powerful. I think people are really drawn to his journey of redemption and, by extension, the capacity that each of us has for change. The other enduring quality is people love a good ghost story. The story is entertaining, and Dickens is awesome.” Read more…
