This one-act adaptation captures the classic Christmas ghost story in 45 magical minutes

One freezing, candlelit Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by his old business partner, Jacob Marley, seven years dead, who seeks to warn him of the error of his ways

Over the course of the night, Scrooge is haunted by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future and learns he must embrace the true spirit of Christmas before it's too late

Dramatized with flair and wit, this adaptation effortlessly unfolds the ageless story of lost love and redemption

The spooky shadows are cleverly punctuated with rare humour and traditional Christmas carols

And by not including the usual Interval, the piece retains all the suspense and growing tension of the best of ghost stories

Highly theatrical, employing simple but powerful sound effects, it's perfect for students, schools, youth theatres & competitions

Casting and staging requirements are extremely flexible
