Theater troupe onstage with Christmas classic.

1737611.t.jpg
Cleveland's longest-running holiday theater tradition starts tonight when The Great Lakes Theater Festival begins a month-long run of A Christmas Carol. While the troupe has performed Charles Dickens' classic tale of Scrooge and his three ghosts for 19 straight seasons, artistic director Andrew May still takes care to make the production true to the script. "I'm like a traffic cop ensuring it's not a cartoon, but a mind-blowing experience," he says. "All the elements of a ghost story are there. But there is something very Peter Pan about it. It's ageless." Watch Scrooge scowl at 1:30 and 7:30 p.m. today, 7:30 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 1:30 and 7:30 p.m. Saturdays, and 3 p.m. Sundays through December 23 at the Ohio Theatre, 1511 Euclid Avenue. Tickets are $28 to $56. Call 216-241-6000 or visit www.greatlakestheater.org.
Fri., Nov. 23, 1:30 & 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, 1:30 & 7:30 p.m.; Thursdays, Fridays, 7:30 p.m.; Sundays, 3 p.m. Starts: Nov. 23. Continues through Dec. 23, 2007
