"Ebenezer Scrooge declines Christmas dinner with the family, opting to be alone on this frosty winter night. His heart being as cold as his home, is challenged to warm up as the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present & Future take him on a musical journey of his own life. Awakening his spirit brings a joyous new day in this classic, cherished Dickens story."

PRODUCTION NOTES: This version of the show is an original musical that has been workshopped and performed in a student setting, now adapted and growing wings into its next production.
