Caleb Clark is profoundly honored and proud to be making his Alliance stage-debut (and his Atlanta debut!) with the best adaptation of A Christmas Carol that he has ever read. He resides with his person, Rhyn (who happens to be playing Ghost of Christmas Past), and their tiny dog Sadie, and he spends his time writing hip-hoperas, making pretentious coffee, and watching “Ted Lasso.” Being back in the theatre feels like coming home after being banished for over a year. I’m finally back in my house of worship. Thank you so much to all who helped make that possible. Previous Roles include: Billy Bibbit in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (Flint Rep); Chris Keller in All My Sons (Studio 208); Romeo in Romeo and Juliet, Haemon in Antigone (American Shakespeare Center); Walker/Ned in Three Days of Rain (The Vault).

Jessi Little just finished understudying for the Alliance’s previous show Darlin’ Cory and is grateful to be back for Christmas. She is new to Atlanta, having moved from Seattle last year. Atlanta credits include: Lace Larrabee’s Stand Up Comedy class, Aurora Theatre Welcomes – A Cabaret, 48 Hour Film Project, and recurring entertainment at her beloved retirement communities. Her general public cabarets combine stand up, trivia, and music and have been performed in numerous states west of the Mississippi; next up Charlotte, NC (Feb. 2022). Favorite credits: Lizzie Darcy in Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley (New Village Arts, CA), u/s Siobhan & Voice 3 in The Curious Incident… (Village Theatre, WA), “Day by Day” in Godspell (Taproot Theatre, WA), Baker’s Wife in Into the Woods (StageRight Theatre, WA), and singing the National Anthem at Fenway Park (Go Sox!). All is calm, all is bright. www.jessilittle.com IG: @jjessilittle
