In this dramatization of Charles Dickens' classic, Miser Ebenezer Scrooge, who loathes Christmas, loses his business partner, Jacob Marley, on Christmas Eve. For seven years, Scrooge has run his business by exploiting his employee, Bob Cratchit, and has lain bitter treatment upon his family and acquaintances. However, this Christmas Eve he is visited by the doomed ghost of Marley who reveals that three spirits will visit him tonight: The Spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Future will shed light on the dire fate that awaits him if he does not change. The question is, will Scrooge die a miserable penny-pincher or seek atonement for his wicked ways? This abridged version of Dickens’ holiday classic is a delight for audiences of all ages and helps to remind us all that the ripple effects of kindness and compassion know no bounds.
