James Black directs the Alley Theatre’s production of A Christmas Carol — A Ghost Story of Christmas. The annual holiday favorite follows miserly Ebenezer Scrooge as he’s visited by three ghostly spirits on Christmas Eve in an attempt to show him the evil of his ways. Do they succeed? Of course they do! But not before taking Scrooge on an otherworldly, emotional roller-coaster ride.
