Charles Dickens’ timeless story about Ebenezer Scrooge is retold in this heartfelt musical adaptation of A Christmas Carol – A Musical! Although it was published in 1843, A Christmas Carol remains popular because its key messages are as relevant today as they were in the Victorian era.
Ebenezer Scrooge, an aging businessman who cares more for money than the happiness and comfort of others enters, the scene with his infamous “Bah! Humbug!” He has lived a life of misery and solitude and has no mind for “frivolous” things such as joy or the spirit of giving. Feared by some and loathed by others, Scrooge makes his way through the streets of London as the one soul abandoned by the Christmas Spirit. On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of Marley, his former business partner. Marley's selfishness has condemned him to misery in the afterlife, and he warns that Scrooge faces a similar fate. Scrooge is then visited by the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Future who force Scrooge to take stock of his life, reminding him of those he once loved and opening his eyes to the suffering caused by his lack of sympathy. Scrooge emerges from this experience a transformed man. Once an old miserly curmudgeon who hates all the joys of Christmas to a kind soul who is committed to living with generosity and love, embodying the spirit of Christmas.
