Christmas Carol: The Ghost Story of Christmas

Play #: 1734
Pages: 60 pgs
Cast: 4 m, 4 w, 4 children
One Christmas Eve, as carolers gather about a fire, a young boy who cannot sleep discovers a book on his desk. As he opens it, the portraits of his ancestors come alive to take him through the journey of its story. The book, of course, is "A Christmas Carol" and in his travels, the boy meets a man on another journey, Ebenezer Scrooge in the company of the Spirits. This is a startlingly different adaptation of Charles Dickens' Christmas classic. The use of the three Ancestors to do the narration provides an active way to tell the story. These master raconteurs are constantly setting the scene with props, furniture pieces, and language. Their simultaneous actions of taking the boy through the journey and of establishing the scenes allows a naturalness of intent and movement which loosens the usually formal dimension of narration. Thus, it is truly "The Ghost Story of Christmas" as ghosts from the boy's world and the world of the book interweave to tell us the story. A special music and sound effects CD is available to enhance the production. About 80 minutes.
