In 1970, renowned writer/composer/lyricist Leslie Bricusse adapted the classic Charles Dickens tale A Christmas Carol into the hit screen musical Scrooge! Now available as a charming stage musical, Scrooge! has enjoyed a hugely successful tour of England and a season at London’s Dominion Theatre starring the late Anthony Newley. Included are six new songs not performed in the film.
This sure-fire audience pleaser is available in two versions: as a full-length musical and in a 55-minute adaptation that is ideal for small theatre groups and schools, where it can be performed as a short play or as part of a seasonal concert. Selected pieces from the most popular musical numbers are included in the shortened adaptation.
