CHRISTMAS DRAMA WITH SONG. This adaptation of the classic tale by Charles Dickens (1843) includes all the most memorable scenes while offering an easy-to-produce streamlined version suitable for novice or experienced actors. On Christmas Eve, lonely miser Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his dead business partner, Jacob Marley, who warns Scrooge that he will be visited that night by three more apparitions: the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. One by one, the ghosts escort Scrooge into the night to revisit his past and present and to offer him a grim look at what is to come. Scrooge awakens Christmas morning ready to cast aside his greedy, self-serving ways and to embrace acts of kindness and charity toward others who are less fortunate. A rendition of “God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen” is included and other carols may be incorporated at the director’s discretion.
