The classic story of A Christmas Carol is given a modern twist and set at West End High School, where the campus "Scrooge" is Meredith Priestly, the most beautiful, most popular, meanest, nastiest girl in school! With uninterested and never present globe-trotting parents, the lead in the school production of Romeo and Juliet and Queen Bee of campus (or so she thinks!) is in need of a reminder of what Christmas and frienship are about. Visited by five ghosts -- two of which are Patty and Patrick Prince, two former West End Cheerleaders from the 1950's -- Meredith is taken on a life changing journey.


Christmas Carol High School was first produced by Arts Live Theatre in Fayetteville, Arkansas from December 12-14, 2008, and was directed by Morgan Hicks.
