A Christmas Carol 2008
by Charles Dickens
adapted by Barbara Field
directed by Gary Gisselman
Miserly old Ebenezer Scrooge greets Christmas Day with his well-known bah humbug! On Christmas Eve, the ghost of his old business partner, Jacob Marley, visits Scrooge in his bedroom. Marley has been doomed in death to wear the chains he forged in life through his stinginess, greed and uncaring attitude toward others. Scrooge's chain, he says, is much longer than his own, but there is still time for Scrooge to change.
The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet to Come also visit Scrooge during his restless night to show him happy memories from his past, cruel realities from his present and the very likely future should Scrooge continue his cantankerous ways. This perennial family holiday entertainment, inspired by Charles Dickens' immortal tale, returns for its 34th year.
