21st Century Christmas Carol

Written by Lori M. Myers

Here’s a modern twist on Dickens’s classic...  with a female lead!  Eleanor Scrooge, a greedy old spinster, spends her days barking orders at her gift shop employees.  Though the mall will be closed, she still wants them to work on Christmas Day!  Then she’s visited by the ghost of her old boss, Mr. Marley, and a parade of zany spirits who materialize from cheesy collectible figurines.  First there’s the Spirit of the Past, who loves the 1950s and takes Eleanor dancing at a bygone party.  Then there’s the Spirit of Present, who takes Eleanor to the Hatchett family Christmas dinner, where Eleanor feels like she’s watching a sitcom with a nice message of forgiveness.  Finally, the Spirit of Future, who takes Eleanor to her own funeral, completes her change of heart.  She even forgives Tiny Tim’s fake limp!  With great humor, contemporary references, and crazy characters, this easy to stage show will make your audience (and your actors!)  fall in love with the classic story all over again.
