A Christmas Carol
Flexible cast of 20; chorus of carolers
Duration: c. 75 minutes
Text: Charles Dickens/Marcella Holloway. This musical centers on one day in the life of Ebenezer Scrooge… Christmas Eve. Christmas for him is all “Bah and Humbug.” That night three spirits haunt his dreams, showing him what he once was as a boy, joyful and happy, the miserly man he is now and what his future fate could be. After his confrontation with the spirits, he awakens a new man. Scrooge buys the biggest goose available for the Cratchit family, gives generously to the poor and helps save Tiny Tim. After his night’s experience Scrooge is glad to be alive, and he sings that message to the world.
