News   Guthrie's 90-Minute Christmas Carol to Feature Goetz as Scrooge The Guthrie's 35th annual production of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol will feature a new adaptation by Barbara Field.

Directed by Gary Gisselman, performances will begin at the Minnesota venue Nov. 19 with an official opening Nov. 21. Performances will continue through Dec. 31.

Single tickets will go on sale Sept. 8 at 11 AM.

Stage and screen actor Peter Michael Goetz will return to play Ebenezer Scrooge. Goetz previously played the classic character in 2001, 2002 and 2003.

In a statement director Gisselman said, "I always thought that this story should be told in one breath, especially as it relates to the rhythm of Scrooge’s dreams. It is one of the world’s greatest ghost stories – one that you don’t want to stop until it’s over – so it is exciting to be working with Barbara and Peter as we craft a new adaptation in celebration of the Guthrie’s 35th annual staging."

The artistic team includes Neil Patel (set designer), Jess Goldstein (costume design 1996), David Kay Mickelsen (additional costume designs), Marcus Dilliard (lighting designer), Victor Zupanc (composer), Anita Ruth (musical director), Scott W. Edwards (sound designer), Michael Lupu (dramaturgy), Elisa Carlson (voice and dialect coach), Lucinda Holshue (voice and dialect coach), Myron Johnson (associate director/movement coach), Jason Clusman (stage manager), Justin Hossle (assistant stage manager) and Elizabeth R. MacNally (assistant stage manager). The complete cast will be announced later this fall.
