Synopsis

Arthur Felton is a tight-fisted, grasping old miser. He's also a famous actor playing Scrooge in Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Onstage, Arthur's friendly warmth has made his audience love him. Backstage, it's different. Arthur fires a young actor who is late for rehearsal even though the young man had to arrange an operation for his wife. Then Arthur is visited by a once-promising actress, whom he fired, and also by his sister. What they say shakes him. Lastly, an old cleaning woman appears and helps Arthur resolve to make amends. Suddenly Arthur realizes that it's Christmas and that he strongly resembles another famous old miser! Like Scrooge, he takes steps—joyous steps!

Customer Reviews

"The Christmas Miser requires simple properties and settings making it easy and inexpensive to produce. It's a perfect play for small high school groups. Very loosely based on Dickens' classic Christmas Carol, this play has a sweet seasonal message."
