A Christmas Carol
December 2 - 17
Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 PM
Indoor Forest Theatre

A benefit for PacRep's School of Dramatic Arts (SoDA) and MPTT Scholarship Fund.

PacRepTheatre and the Monterey Peninsula Theatre Trust (MPTT) will be hosting A CHRISTMAS CAROL in the historic Indoor Forest Theatre, adapted and performed by local professional actor/director Gary Bolen.
Created in the spirit of Christmas, Bolen portrays 27 different characters – from Scrooge himself, to Tiny Tim and all three Ghosts of Christmas – in a one hour and 25-minute production. The performances at the Indoor Forest Theatre will raise funds for both the PacRep School of Dramatic Arts (SoDA) and the MPTT scholarship fund.

Dear Patrons, 

Please see detailed information about the Forest Theater and PacRep's safety protocols below.


COVID-19 Guidelines for Forest Theater   08/01/2021
THANK YOU for your patience during this challenging time. PacRep is thrilled to welcome back our patrons to live performances!  

As our venues reopen, we remain committed to the safety of our patrons and employees. Below is additional information on the steps we are taking as PacRep Theatre.
  • Though no longer required at this time, we recommend all patrons be fully vaccinated, or, at the least, take a same-day Covid test prior to attending crowded areas such as auditoriums.  This section will be updated as further information becomes available.

  • Masks are now optional in all areas, but are recommended indoors, in crowed lines or when visiting the restroom. 

Social Distancing...
  • The CDC continues to recommend social distancing in large or crowded groups.

Meeting the performers... 

  • To protect the health and safety of our performers and crew, the tradition of greeting the cast after the production will remain suspended until further notice. 

Venue Capacities
  • Auditorium capacities will be reduced where required by state or county mandate.
PacRep Company Members
  • All PacRep cast members, crew and volunteers over 5 years of age are required to be vaccinated.

Guest Wellness
  • PacRep Theatre's reopening plan is consistent with the safety practices recommended by the Centers for Disease Control for operating public event spaces during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ongoing Actions
  • PacRep continues to work closely with the relevant authorities, and safety measures will be constantly monitored and adjusted according to the latest requirements.

Venue Information 

 To make your theater going experience more pleasant, we encourage you to arrive early and to please bear in mind the following:
  • Friday and Saturday performances at the Indoor Forest Theater begin at 7:30 PM, with seating beginning thirty minutes prior to show time. Parking is limited, and there is no reserve seating.
  • Only licensed service animals are allowed into the venue. Please have your printed license ready to show box office personnel.
  • For patron convenience, a passenger drop off area is in the main parking lot.
  • Parking is recommended on Mountain View, and on Junipero Street (a 10 minute walk down Mountain View).
  • There are no refunds once tickets are purchased. Tickets may be exchanged for alternate performances (subject to availability) by contacting the Box Office, at least 24 hours prior to the original performance date. With the exception of Flexpass holders, ticket exchanges will incur a per ticket fee of $3.00.
  • While PacRep is taking measures to enhance the safety of our visitors, performers, and employees, an inherent risk of exposure to and infection with COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present, and a visit to the Forest Theater may still pose a risk to your safety. By visiting the Forest Theater, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19. PacRep reserves the right to ask any patron to leave the premises.
