An abrasive millionaire who disparages everyone around him is visited by quartet of ghosts on Christmas Eve who shock him to his core and force him to change his ways for the better. Is this merely wish fulfillment writ large, or another production of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol? It could perhaps be both. The Repertory Theatre of Saint Louis brings back its most requested show (adapted by David H. Bell) for a timely holiday run. A Christmas Carol is performed Tuesday through Sunday (December 2 to 24) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; www.repstl.org). Tickets are $18 to $88.50.
