Overview

adapted from the novel by Charles Dickens

Holiday Comedy

Characters: 17 male, 14 female, double casting and cross-gender casting possible

Multiple Settings

A Ridiculous but surprisingly faithful rendition of the Dickens classic in which Ebenezer Scrooge is haunted by the ghosts of his late partner, Jacob Marley, Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and the Spirit of Christmas Yet to Come. Faced with his own mortality, and the evil results of his misanthropic, miserly ways, Scrooge is redeemed, reconciled with his nephew and his neighbors, and becomes a second father to his assistant's son, Tiny Tim.

Ludlam finds the humor as well as the pathos in this Victorian melodrama, creating the most Dickensian and stageworthy adaptation yet.

"A faithful, authentic adaptation of the evergreen Christmas tale."- The New York Times

"A perfect holiday entertainment." - SoHo Weekly News "A delicious family treat."- Christian Science Monitor
