Raymond Castelán
A Christmas Carol continues through December 24.
Learn more about the production and order tickets.
How many times have you been in A Christmas Carol?
This is my first time in A Christmas Carol and my first time on The Geary stage.

What's your favorite thing about San Francisco during the holidays?
Ice skating in Union Square with the tree and Macy’s windows all lit up.

What is your favorite Christmas carol?
“Oh Holy Night”

What are your favorite holiday traditions?
On Christmas Eve everyone goes over to my parents’ house and we make tamales together. It’s an all-day process that begins with breakfast and Christmas carols on the radio all day and ends with opening presents at midnight.

What is the best gift you've ever given or received?
It’s become a tradition for my folks to get me and my siblings flannel p.j.’s for Christmas Eve each year—so comfy after a long day in those crisp Central Valley winters.

What is your favorite moment in A Christmas Carol?
I like watching the Boy Scrooge sequence. It is really nice to be reminded where Scrooge comes from and to see him with his little sister.

Who is your favorite character in A Christmas Carol? Why?
Oh, there are so many great characters in this story but I am really fond of Sharon Lockwood’s Mrs. Dilber and Jarion Monroe’s Mr. Fezziwig.

What do you want for the holidays this year?
I haven’t been home for about six months so I’m just looking forward to making it home by December 25 and having some of my mother’s cooking.
