- "This show was a hit. While hilarious at time, it has some very touching moments as well. Our audiences loved the humor and the new twist on the old story."
- Review by Ane Mulligan, Players Guild at Sugar Hill, Sugar Hill, Ga.
- "What a fabulous and fun play to do. So many wonderful laughs and asides and the characters are perfect. Our audience had a wonderful time (easy to tell by the number of laughs). I was working with "virgin" thespians and we only had 12 rehearsals. They did a great job and worked very hard to give the audience a great performance. The response was overwhelmingly positive. Great play!!!"
- Review by Lee Kools, Scottish Rite Charitable Foundation, Hamilton, Ontario
- "This is a great alternative choice for the holidays because it appeals to kids and adults. The more the audience knows A Christmas Carol, the funnier it is, but the animated characters and witty dialog keep it fun for everyone."
- Review by Ted Weil, Falcon Theatre, Cincinnati, Ohio
- "The play was very well received each time we've done it. The play is uplifting and certainly fills one with the Christmas spirit. The play gives actors a chance to develop and portray a variety of wonderful characters. We plan on doing this play every other year."
- Review by Karyn Lee Maio, Sapulpa Community Theatre, Sapulpa, Okla.
- "The play was charming and inventive ... a great introduction to Dickens for a newcomer and a delight for literature buffs. The show was full of humor and tendernessÑsomething for everyone, from laughter to tears."
- Review by Beth Leffler, Eastlake High School, El Paso, Texas
Hints, Tips, and Tricks
- "Make sure you make the bailiff comic relief.
Be sure the Ghost of Yet to Come is also a source of comedy.
- Tip by Patrick Erhardt, Valerie Players, Inverness, Fla.
- "Children all wanted their picture takes with Marley's ghost (we hired a professional makeup artist for him). We kept the set simple, using set pieces instead of flats."
- Tip by Ane Mulligan, Players Guild at Sugar Hill, Sugar Hill, Ga.
- "We used a Theremin for sound effects for the Spirit of Christmas Past, which added a spooky sound, and engendered audience curiosity as to what was making the sound."
- Tip by Carole Sullivan, Galena Center for the Arts, Galena, Ill.
- "Our "Ghost of Christmas Future" needed no special effects to communicate. Instead, he explored the range of his own voice to make things "eerie"... and comical! It removed a tech headache for us since we had only one operator to handle the duties of both lights and sound."
- Tip by Sandy Jennings, Warehouse Theatre Company, Yakima, Wash.
