Based on Charles Dickens’ famous book, “A Christmas Carol,” and the 1970 film “Scrooge,” this musical was nominated for an Academy Award. In the familiar plot, the miser Ebenezer Scrooge is visited on Christmas Eve by the ghost of his partner Jacob Marley as well as three other apparitions from Christmases past, present, and future who take him on a magical journey of redemption. This musical will warm the hearts of the entire family with bright tunes and a colorful cast of familiar characters including the Fezziwigs, the Cratchits, and the endearing Tiny Tim. With many songs that will be familiar from the film, this is a classic Christmas tale for the whole family.
This will be the second production of “Scrooge: The Musical” at the playhouse, which is produced in memory of David Roberts, father of “Scrooge” director and executive director of World Under Wonder Playhouse, Sean Edward Roberts, as a new tradition. In addition to many new actors joining the production, there will be several familiar faces on stage this year, including Neal Cronce reprising the role of Scrooge, Hannah McFadden as the Ghost of Christmas Past, and Danielle Peterson as Young Scrooge’s love interest, Isabel.
