About the show:
In this highly inventive adaptation of the classic Dickens story, we encounter a company of traveling players about to enact the Dickens story. The gruff stage manager and prop boy check the show’s props, which are shabby and third-rate. The troupe soon discovers that the actors playing Scrooge and Tiny Tim have abandoned the tour. But the show must go on, and the prop boy eagerly volunteers for the part of Tim while the cynical stage manager must be forcibly drafted to play the old miser. The rag tag players (including the stage manager and prop boy) quickly become the characters of the story, and we are pulled into the life of Ebenezer Scrooge. The Christmas Spirits work their magic and warm the heart of Scrooge, as well as the old stage manager.
