"With a BRAND NEW LOOK and a NEW ADAPTATION, we return with a classic holiday favorite. Join us as Ebenezer Scrooge gets one last chance for redemption when he sees his past, present, and the possibilities for the future with four persuasive ghosts."

Every four or five years, CBT redesigns Christmas Carol, with some new team members and a new script.  This version focuses on time. It's a wonderfully abstract and dynamic production. See the previous version I designed here.  Some ideas will look similar to the past production, some radically different. This version uses projections more as transition and ghost texture and effect, rather than location (all of the moving textures are projections). They are more integrated and subtle in this version - not as bold as the previous version.  A truly delightful holiday tradition. Proud to be involved.
