The famous story of Ebenezer Scrooge, the man who hated Christmas and, indeed, all of humanity, is well-known. This adaptation sticks faithfully to the original short story and is particularly enhanced by the use of projected images (see below) to represent the various visions shown to Scrooge by the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future. A delightful play. The “visions” induced by the Spirits are created by the use of projected slides. A returnable set of slides is provided free of charge with each licence application.
