A Seattle holiday tradition will unfold Nov. 28 with the return of ACT’s “A Christmas Carol.”

It will be the 33rd installment by A Contemporary Theatre. The play will run through Dec. 27.

A Seattle holiday tradition since 1976, A Christmas Carol takes audiences along on Ebenezer Scrooge’s transformational journey from selfish tightwad to enlightened soul after a restless evening filled with ghostly visitors from Christmases past, present and future.

New this year, ACT will host a special event for the entire family, Holiday Tea with the Fezziwigs. Families can enjoy tea, cocoa and tasty treats, sing along with carolers and create their own holiday ornament before the 2 p.m. performance on Dec. 6 or 13. The special tickets ($60 for child and senior, $70 for adult) are available by calling Kait Peters at 206-292-7660, x1331.

ACT also is participating in a food drive to benefit Northwest Harvest during the run of “A Christmas Carol.” Audience members are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to ACT on the night of the show.

ACT Theatre ticket office is at 206-292-7676. ACT is located at 700 Union Street, Seattle; www.acttheatre.org.
