Christmas Carol: Scrooge in Bethlehem
In this merry adaptation of Charles Dickens's 19th-century English story, A Christmas Carol, Scrooge is the Bethlehem innkeeper who refuses shelter to Mary and Joseph on that first Christmas night. His front desk clerk, Bob Cratchit, comes to their aid while Scrooge sleeps alone in his dark room at the inn. When God sends an angel with the light of salvation to Scrooge, the wretched man is forced to search his soul. Gradually he realizes that he has traded his soul for money. His final redemption reflects the promise of salvation for all, both poor and rich, in the birth of Emmanuel. The Performance Pack includes 1 Director Score and 10 Singer Editions. CD sold separately. Grades K-8, 20 minutes.
