Recalling Mr. Scrooge

HOLIDAY COMEDY. Inspired by the classic tale by Charles Dickens. In this sequel to "Call Me Mr. Scrooge," the four ghosts are back, but this time they have to convince Ebenezer Scrooge’s grandson, Scrooge III, to get into the Christmas spirit. The Ghost of Jacob Marley hires Christmas carolers to serenade Scrooge III, but they keep interrupting the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, who have been busy dealing with their own personal issues. The Ghost of Christmas Past is still in therapy recovering from the “Ken and Barbie incident,” the Ghost of Christmas Present still can’t remember anything in the present, and the Ghost of Christmas Future has abandoned her malfunctioning crystal ball. Since Scrooge III doesn’t believe in ghosts, the Ghost of Jacob Marley may have to resort to Plan B and call on the Easter Bunny (aka “The Closer”) for help! Easy to stage. For the craziest Christmas carol of all, check out "Call Me Mr. Scrooge" by Murray J. Rivette. Also available as a musical!
