An Actor's Carol

by: Charles Evered

Welcome to the Website for the play An Actor’s Carol, by Charles Evered. This is where you can find out a little history of the play, information on past, present and future productions, as well as news about an upcoming film in the works!

An Actor’s Carol tells the story of Hugh Pendleton, a cranky veteran actor who is sick and tired of playing Scrooge every holiday, subsequently suffers a nervous breakdown, and is visited by three ghosts of his own. The adaptation is a loving send up of the Dickens classic A Christmas Carol. The play premiered in December 2015 at the Hi-Desert Playhouse in Joshua Tree, and opened with Tony winner Hal Linden (Barney Miller) starring as Scrooge. It was nominated for eight Desert Theatre League Star Awards, with Evered winning the Bill Groves Award for Outstanding Original Writing.
