Synopsis

The Cratchit family, preparing for a hearty Christmas in spite of their poverty, is dismayed to learn that their father will have to work on Christmas Day, as his employer, Mr. Scrooge, is mean and miserly. On Christmas Eve, after Scrooge dismisses Cratchit with savage ill humor and locks up for the night, his dead partner's ghost undertakes to show him the error of his ways. When Christmas Day dawns, Scrooge is a changed man and with new joy goes about making amends for his grouchy ways. The play ends with a celebration in the Cratchit kitchen that has spelled Christmas for generations past and will for generations to come.

Customer Reviews

"We enjoyed Mrs. King's script because she highlighted the Cratchit family so well. The script stayed true to Mr. Dickens' original story, yet simplified the sets to make it accessible to high school and community theatres."
Review by Jamey Wood, The King's Academy ACTS, Woodstock, Ga.
