Short review: A Christmas Carol

Rated 5.0

STC’s production offers a storybook adaptation which revels in party and crowd scenes, succeeding at sweeping up both the audience and Scrooge in their cheerful spirit. The show offers delightfully ominous visions and powerful, direct audience address to caution us all against letting greed crowd out our hope for a better world. Thu 7pm, Fri 8pm, Sat 2pm & 8pm, Sun 2pm, Wed 7pm. Through 12/23; $22-$37; Sacramento Theatre Company, 1419 H St., (916) 443-6722,
