A Christmas Carol

Rated 4.0

Greg Alexander plays a sly Scrooge in Buck Busfield’s comic adaptation of the Charles Dickens tale. Challenging his ghosts and tempting his fate, this Scrooge finds redemption in a most unorthodox way. Director Dave Pierini puts a marvelous ensemble (John Lamb, Amy Kelly, Kurt Johnson and Tara Sissom) through fast-paced action and plenty of costume changes. Th, F 8pm, Sa 5 pm and 9pm, Su 2pm, T 6:30pm, W 2pm. Through 12/31. $26-$38; B Street Theatre, 2711 B Street; (916) 443-5300; www.bstreettheatre.org. J.C.
