about

Ebenezer Scrooge, a local business man, has earned the reputation of being a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous, old sinner, and bitter old miser – and that’s putting it nicely!  To top it off Scrooge hates Christmas, calling it "humbug."

Scrooge reluctantly gives his overworked, underpaid clerk Bob Cratchit Christmas Day off with pay, and while doing so describes Christmas as "a poor excuse for picking a man's pocket every 25th of December!"

At home that night, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his deceased business partner, Jacob Marley, who is forever cursed to wander the earth dragging a network of heavy chains, forged during a lifetime of greed and selfishness. Marley’s purpose is to help Scrooge avoid the same ill fate.  Marley tells Scrooge that he will be visited by three spirits – The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come, respectively. 

Each ghost in turn visits Scrooge to help him see the errors and consequences of his ways. And with the smallest glimmer of hope, perhaps they can revive the once forgotten sense of humanity and kindness that was once within him.
