In December, I had the joy of performing as Young Ebenezer in South Coast Rep's 36th annual production of "A Christmas Carol." This was my second year in the role, and it was even more fun than the first. But really, it was my third go-round with the show... When I was 12, I played Peter Cratchit in SCR's production. Talk about ghosts of Christmas Past!
