Show Synopsis: A year after his miraculous transformation, Ebenezer Scrooge is back to his old ways and is suing Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future for breaking and entering, kidnapping, slander, pain and suffering, attempted murder and the intentional infliction of emotional distress. We relive the night in question as all of the characters from A Christmas Carol take the stand.
Please come prepared to do a cold reading, throw your voice, act weird, act spooky, act crotchety, sing a holiday song or carol A Capella, and utilize the full range of your facial expression abilities. Monologues will be seen at the very start (If you have one). Wear comfortable clothing. The production will utilize fog machines, hidden doors, sarcasm, and accents.
