It’s the Dallas Theater Center production everybody in town, from toddlers to grandparents, looks forward to the most. No holiday story compares to A Christmas Carol. And no holiday season is complete without this bright, funny, spooky, moving, soul-stirring, heart-warming, uplifting classic. It’s filled with traditional and original songs that will have you whistling on your way home as merrily as Mr. Fezziwig. For the first time, Brierley Resident Acting Company member and longtime Dallas Theater Center favorite, Chamblee Ferguson (Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream) will portray the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge. Get in the spirit with this glorious production, which helps support the North Texas Food Bank. As Tiny Tim would say, “God bless us, every one!”

Hi I'm Angela Baxley, and I am in 7th grade. I went with Como-Pickton ISD last Saturday. I absolutely loooovved the ghost of Christmas past outfit!(The actor himself was handsome too.) Especially his shoes and his powered wig! I loved everything about the play!

My partner and I just returned from the matinee performance of "A Christmas Carol" (12/18/10). It was the best performance I have ever seen!   The addition of music throughout transformed the play entirely for me. I felt like a kid–I caught myself sitting up in my chair, smiling, and anticipating what would happen next. The thunder scared me! I couldn't take my eyes off of Liz Mikel, and hung on her every word!   Chamblee Ferguson is the best Scrooge I have ever seen- by far! I have seen several productions of "Carol", and I have to tell you that it is brilliant casting to put Chamblee in that role. Live performances never make me cry, but my partner and I teared up at least three times during your version of "A Christmas Carol", out of good, old-fashioned sentiment.    During his gravestone scene, I could see a tear run down Chamblee's face. I cried with him. So did my partner and my sister, sitting next to me. No actor on stage has ever been able to touch my heart as he did. I hope you keep him in that role for next year.

We saw the Friday nite (17th) performance and we absolutely loved it! Our family has made watching A Christmas Carol at the Dallas Theater Center one of our holiday traditions. This year's performance is our all-time favorite. Chamblee Ferguson's portrayal of Ebenezer Scrooge was wonderful--we hope he is Scrooge again next year. Congratulations to Matthew Gray on a job well done! Merry Christmas, Leslie M.

I love the new director and I hope he keeps changing it each year. In the 20 years that I have been coming we haven't missed a year yet. Started out me and my mom, has grown to me, mom, girlfriend, daughter, her son, and two of my friends. My son will be old enough to come with us in 2011, can not wait to see his face light up as all of ours have for so long. Great holiday tradition for us! Thanks.

I wanted to let you you know how much we enjoyed A Christmas Carol on Weds. My project discovery kids(some of which have seen the show for three years) all raved about it! The fresh new approach that Matt Gray brought to the show was incredible! The students and I really loved the subtle and major changes with this version still keeping the story alive! The student from our school always love working with Emily Gray( she does our dialect work) and it was nice for them to see her in action! I also have to say from someone who has seen this production several times, that this was THE BEST VERSION YET! Keep up the great work! This season has been AMAZING and I know that the best is still yet to come!

Good morning! I had never been to the Dallas Theater Center before this weekend. I had never seen a stage production of "A Christmas Carol" before this weekend. I have seen "Phantom of the Opera" when it was at the Music Hall at Fair Park last year, and I have seen operas at the Winspear. So, when I compared the sizes of these theaters and their productions to Kalita Humphreys Theater in my mind, I wasn't expecting a whole lot. Boy was I surprised. "A Christmas Carol" far exceeded anything I had imagined it would be. The cast was splendid (Scrooge was perfect, and Tiny Tim amazed me at how he could handle his role for such a young fellow!); the singing was uplifting and beautiful; the overall production was excellent, from the sound and lighting to the special effects (the moving chair and bed, the fog, the "face on the doorknocker"). The pace was exceptional--the plot never slowed for a moment. And what may have been the very best thing of all was the clever use of the stage--the way that the props were moved in and out, the use of the revolving floor (especially during the "Christmas present" scenes of the Crachit and nephew's homes), and having some of actors' entrances come from the audience. I'm impressed that a stage curtain was never used at all! Thank you for such a wonderful, delightful production! I will try never to underestimate a production based on the size of the venue again. Two thumbs up! Sincerely, Roger H. Dallas, Texas (attended Sunday night, Dec. 5)

Hi, I would still like to send in an Audition. Is it too late? I was going to send one through my mom's Facebook. Will you still take it if I send it today? I would love to be apart of this, it sounds fun! I did a camp here this summer and think it would be a cool experience! :)
