The Last Christmas Carol
The Last Christmas Carol
Book and lyrics by David Meyers. Music by Scott Michal.

Cast: 11m., 11w. 22 to 40 or more (approximately half m.), extras, chorus. Doubling possible. The holidays are here again! But is that any reason for another production of A Christmas Carol? Brodwyn Branson, the Scrooge-like director of a local children's theatre, certainly doesn't think so. But without the green it brings in, his little drama company would be in the red! Still, Branson can barely conceal his contempt for the whole affair. But just as Branson's humbug-ish attitude is beginning to rub off on his young actors and threatens to ruin the show, he is visited by a series of Christmas spirits, including his former agent, an acid-tongued drama critic, and an Elvis impersonator whose specialty is smelling like The King. Subjected to an eye-opening tour of his own life, Branson comes to understand that the message of the classic Dickens' tale is every bit as relevant today as it ever was. And, miraculously, the kids pull the show together in the nick of time. A witty script, delightful characters and unforgettable songs make The Last Christmas Carol the perfect show to put any Scrooge in the holiday spirit! Bare stage w/props. Approximate Running Time: 2 hours.

David Meyers lives in Columbus, Ohio, where, to quote James Thurber, "almost anything is likely to happen, and in which almost everything has." The idea for The Last Christmas Carol popped into Meyers' head while he was watching his 13-year-old daughter and her friends valiantly rehearsing a rather lackluster version of A Christmas Carol. Thinking he could do something more ...More
