PHOTO CALL: Graeme Malcolm, James Ludwig, Baylen Thomas and Ali Ewoldt Star in the McCarter's Christmas Carol

The McCarter Theatre Center's annual production of A Christmas Carol plays through Dec. 29 in the Matthews Theatre.

The musical features an adaptation by David Thompson and direction by Michael Unger.


The cast is headed by Broadway veteran Graeme Malcolm as Ebenezer Scrooge with AJ Cedeño (Jacob Marley), Ronica Reddick (Christmas Present), John Ahlin (Mr. Fezziwig), January LaVoy (Mrs. Cratchit), Michele Tauber (Mrs. Fezziwig), James Ludwig (Fred), Ali Ewoldt (Fan), Baylen Thomas (Bob Cratchit), David Kenner (Young Scrooge), Julyana Soelistyo (Mrs. Dilber) and Kimiye Corwin (Lily/Belle).

A Christmas Carol, according to McCarter, is Charles Dickens' "timeless tale of Ebenezer Scrooge and his magical journey into Christmas past, present, and future."

"This production is truly a gift not only to our audiences but to everyone involved," stated McCarter producing director Mara Isaacs. "Whether you are nine or 99, the play never ceases to delight and amuse with its large cast of characters and timeless theme of redemption. Charles Dickens reminds us of the power we all possess to make the world a better place to live. People who remember seeing A Christmas Carol when it began at McCarter 30 years ago will be surprised to see how much it has evolved over the years."
