“A Christmas Carol” at A Noise Within


Celebrating their Fifth year of A Christmas Carol and 25th Anniversary Season A Noise Within (ANW), the acclaimed classical repertory theatre company, continues their cherished holiday tradition of presenting its well-loved production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol each December, this year celebrating our fifth year of A Christmas Carol and the 25th Anniversary Season of A Noise Within overall. This time-honored tale of forgiveness performs now through Friday, December 23.

A special Pay-What-You-Can performance has been announced for Sunday, December 11 at 7:00 pm.

Pay What You Can tickets (Sunday, Dec 11 at 7:00 pm) go on sale at the box office window the day of the performance, starting at 2:30 pm, and are sold on a cash-only basis based on availability; limit of two tickets per person. 

Producing Artistic Directors Geoff Elliott (who adapted the play from the novella) and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott co-direct Dickens’ masterpiece about the redemptive and transformative power of love. In this production, hailed for its “enchantment” by LA Weekly, Dickens’ poignant tale is matched by evocative original music by composer Ego Plum.

“Remounting our acclaimed presentation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol allows families to once again take a supremely theatrical journey, and celebrate the transformative power of forgiveness during the holidays,” says Elliott. Rodriguez-Elliott adds, “Ebenezer Scrooge’s rebirth from miserly curmudgeon to the epitome of love and generosity affirms our faith in the potent goodness of humanity during this beloved time of year.”

A Christmas Carol cast this year features Geoff Elliott* as Scrooge, Freddy Douglas* as Narrator, Eric Curtis Johnson* as Cratchit, Rafael Goldstein* as Fred/Young Scrooge, Jill Hill* as Mrs. Cratchit/Mrs. Fezziwig, Jeremy Raab* as Marley, Deborah Strang* as Ghost of Christmas Past/Charwoman, Steve Weingartner* as Ghost of Christmas Present/Benevolent Gentleman, Alison Elliott* as Belle/Laundress, Jack Elliott as Peter Cratchit, and Eli Stuart as Tiny Tim.  The ensemble, portraying various roles, consists of Samuel Christian, Rigel Pierce-English, Seven Pierce-English, Taleen Shrikian, Richy Storrs, Savannah Gilmore, Ashlyn Woo, Megan Farber, and Tyler Miclean. *Denotes member of Actors’ Equity.

About the 25th Anniversary Season 2016-2017 – Beyond our Wildest Dreams:

The theme of the season Beyond Our Wildest Dreams resonates with all of the plays for the season — this coming spring, ANW presents Shakespeare’s King Lear (February 12- May 6, 2017), Ah, Wilderness! by Eugene O’Neill (March 5-May 20, 2017), and Man of La Mancha by Dale Wasserman, music by Mitch Leigh and lyrics by Joe Darion (March 26-May 21, 2017), which round out their celebratory season. With Lear and Man of La Mancha being performed on the same set, audiences will be able to see both plays performed on the same day in The Great Escape, on two days– Saturday April 22 and Saturday May 6.
