A Christmas Carol, The Musical

Ever since the Christmas Eve seven years before when Ebenezer Scrooge buried his long-time friend and business partner Jacob Marley, Scrooge's melancholy had settled into an angry bitterness toward the holidays and caused him to behave with animosity towards all his fellow men. His loyal but meek clerk, Bob Cratchit, was the constant target of his cruelty. Even Scrooge's nephew was unable to inspire in his uncle any holiday sentiment warmer than “Bah! Humbug!”. But this Christmas Eve proves startlingly different because Ebenezer receives some unexpected company. The ghost of his old partner Marley appears to warn him of the consequences of the suffering his is unwittingly causing to both himself and to others. Marley extends to Scrooge an invitation to change his ways.

The invitation comes by way of visits from three spirits. First, the Ghost of Christmas Past appears to show Scrooge errors he made in his youth and remind him of his lost true love, Emily. Next, the Ghost of Christmas Present invites the miserly old man to witness the Cratchit family's Christmas. Even though their youngest son Tiny Tim is crippled and ailing, the Cratchits are blessed, happy, and grateful for all they have. Scrooge's last visitor is the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Be who leads him through a vision of his bleak future, including a scene of his own death where he is mourned by “nary a soul.” Pleading with the spirit to grant him another chance, the penitent Scrooge promises to alter his future and to know Christmas in his heart all year round.
