Synopsis of the Story and Presentation

Ebenezer Scrooge is a cold hearted man but a visit from his dead business partner will be the start of a journey through the history of his life to discover the true meaning of Christmas.  Scrooge must learn to be a better man from his time with the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future or share Jacob Marley’s fate.  This is a fast paced, one man pantomime combining Dickens’ famous tale with ghost gags, soap scenes, songs and the world famous banana game!  Presented in an assembly/conference style.
