Though the sounds of “Jingle Bells” may not be echoing through area malls just yet, several local theaters will begin rolling out seasonal fare today. Ford’s Theatre (511 10th St. NW) will conjure the ghosts of Christmas plays past with its annual presentation of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas.” Performances begin at noon today and continue through Dec. 30. (Additional showtimes are available at www.fordstheatre.org.) Tickets are $30 to $55 and may be purchased through the Web site or by calling 202/347-4833. Across town, Studio Theatre (1501 14th St. NW) will stage “The Long Christmas Ride Home,” an innovative work by Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel that uses puppetry, storytelling and music to recount an ill-fated Christmas Eve journey. The curtain rises at 8 tonight, and performances continue though Dec. 31. Additional showtimes and tickets (priced from $39 to $55) are available online at www.studiotheatre.org or by calling 202/332-3300.
