Each spirit takes him on a hair-raising journey through time, yielding glimpses of Tiny Tim and Bob Cratchit—and even Scrooge’s painfully hopeful younger self. Will Scrooge’s heart be opened? Can he escape his cursed fate?

A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors’ prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic characters.

Along with producing, his acting has earned him a number of awards, including two for excellence in acting from the Kennedy Center. He also performs stand-up, sketch, and improv comedy around Los Angles and throughout the United States. He has extensive knowledge of old-time radio, both dramatic and comedic, which has been a passion of his since first hearing William Conrad as Matt Dillon in Gun Smoke.
