P.M. Clepper's all-female adaptation of Dickens' classic.
Cast: 22w., extras. Why shouldn't an actress get a chance to portray one of the meanest roles ever created (such as Scrooge) or one of the more poignant (such as Scrooge's employee, here renamed Bobbie Cratchit)? There's also Bobbie Cratchit's heartbreakingly appealing child, Little Liza (Tiny Tim). The script retains the original point, but it's with an entirely new twist that adds something unexpected to your theatrical Christmas festivities. Edna Scrooge has sacrificed human feelings of love and friendship to be a success. To her, Bobbie is just an impersonal office machine. Alone on Christmas Eve, the overworked Edna hallucinates—with the help of ghosts—about her grim past and even colder future. We already know what we're getting with old Ebenezer—but Ms. Scrooge is a whole new Christmas experience. Your cast and your audience will love it! One int. set. Approximate Running Time: 40 minutes.
