The timeless Dickens' tale of a cold- hearted miser, his kindly clerk, lots of holiday-minded Londoners and a host of ghosts is set to music in this adaptation of"A Christmas Carol." "Scrooge - The Musical" is di- rected by Kenney Workman and features Dick Pack as Scrooge, Harvey Williams as Marley's Ghost, Lucas Hardy as Bob Cratchit and Molly King as Tiny Tim. More than 30 other actors make up the cast of Londoners, Scrooge's family, the Cratchits and spirits, ghosts and memories. Jan Glasscock is accompanist. Using hinged flats, Workman's set swings in one direction for Scrooge's office and unfolds in another to reveal the Cratchits' sparse dining room. Scrooge's bedroom, the scene of many ghostly visits, gives way to par- ties, schoolrooms and the shops of the city. Jolly relatives, childhood friends and lost loves all share the stage with wailing phantoms and a deceased, but confrontational, former business partner. The spir- its of the era guide Scrooge from the distant past to a frightening future; some of the spectral trav- eling even dipg into fiery regions located far below London. suitable for all ages.
