Christmas/Holiday

This fresh approach to the classic tale faithfully conveys the magic of Dickens. On Christmas Eve in 1843 friends and family gathered at Dickens' home ask him to tell a story, but he refuses to work on Christmas Eve. If there is going to be a story, each must take a part in its telling. And so the story unfolds with the cast of 10 playing over 40 parts.

Other than the opening and closing business with the "child" I liked it very much.  I found it very true to the book and will rate it highly.

The best of the "reduced" cast renditions I've ever read or directed.  Highly recommended for those whole can compile a small ensemble group of actors.  Highly recommended.
