One frigid Christmas Eve, the miserly Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his former partner, Jacob Marley. The ghost informs the selfish Scrooge that he will be visited by three spirits over the next three nights.
As the spirits confront the misanthrope one by one with images of the past, present and future, a magical journey of the heart, mind and spirit develops, and Scrooge discovers the true essence of the Christmas season.
Performed by one actor playing over 40 characters, this tour-de-force re-enactment of the Dickensian holiday classic will bring extra cheer to your Christmas season.
No Bill Murray as a cynical TV executive, no Kermit the Frog as the greenest Bob Cratchit ever: Ron Reed’s adaptation is A Christmas Carol for purists. Reed sticks close to Charles Dickens’s original text, which is its first great strength
