New Twist on an Old Tale
Tired of the same old show each Christmas? How about a new modern adaptation of the classic that's perfect for young actors in a large or small school, religious, or community groups? Why is young Emmy Scrooge such a...well...scrooge? Perhaps a visit from Charles Dickens and two ghostly sisters can persuade her to have a change of heart. But when even the spirit of her thrice-great-grandfather gives up on her, things don't look promising...Sure to become your new holiday favorite. Written by the author of A Play About A Dragon, The Rain King, and The Return of the King.
Emmalina Scrooge was first performed by the Chatham Middle School Drama Club at the Chatham High School auditorium on Cape Cod, Massachusetts on December 12, 2003.
