On Christmas Eve in London, the cantankerous business man, Ebenezer Scrooge (Ethan Goldstein) is visited by his old deceased business partner, Jacob Marley (Lucas Wingfield) in an attempt to save Scrooge from a cursed afterlife.
Marley warns that Scrooge will be visited by spirits this night in an attempt to show him his past, present and possible unfortunate future. The three spirits that follow Marley, the Ghosts of Christmas Past (Maddie VanRiper), Christmas Present (Tyler Atwater) and Christmas Yet to Come (Ben Kringer), take Scrooge through an odyssey of good and bad memories that helped to shape Scrooge’s unforgiving nature.
The holiday classic is filled with memorable characters that help to bring the story to life: Joe Benedict as Bob Cratchet, Scrooge’s poor office clerk; Parker Lardeo as the good natured nephew, Fred; Calvin Blackwell and Mary Teixeira as Mr. & Mrs. Fezzywig; Maddie Anna as Belle, Scrooge’s long lost love; and Mason Michel as Tiny Tim.
