Spirit can be any age or gender.

 

Synopsis

Ebenezer Scrooge had a traumatic experience last Christmas Eve, and as the holiday euphoria subsides, he faces a common dilemma – can he keep those resolutions he made on Christmas morning? And will it make any difference if he does? The Spirit of Christmas Yet to Come never answered that burning question!

Travel through the next year with Ebenezer as he tries to change his way of life, hoping to change the bleak future foretold for him and young Tim Cratchit. While many hope he will succeed, there are those who doubt, and those who actively work to visit failure on him.

A cast filled with fascinating new faces and beloved characters from Dickens’ A Christmas Carol accompany Ebenezer on his journey through a year of successes and near-failures, villainy and romance, while he learns to be the man he wants to be.

A score full of singable music, artfully reminiscent of the time and place of the play, accompanies this family-friendly story that takes dead aim on a place in the roster of evergreen holiday productions.

Cast size: There are 9 adult roles (6 male, 3 female) 10 children (5 boys, 5 girls) and one role (Spirit) that can be played by either gender and any age. There is an ensemble that should have 8-10 members.

Music: There are 19 original songs and four reprises in the score. Five of the songs are sung by or involve the ensemble, and two of the songs are sung by the children.

Scenic design: There are 5 settings (1 street scene, 4 interiors). Degree of realism is flexible. Lighting would be the most crucial design element.

Instrumental requirements: The composer is scoring the music so that theaters will be able to produce the show using only a piano and keyboard or two keyboards, but will also score the show for a small pit band.

Choreography: There is very little choreography required for the show. Mostly, it would be choreographed movement during the ensemble numbers.
