Come Audition for FIPA's Youth Production of
Ebenezer Scrooge, obsessed with solitude and greed, collides in a nightmare with his own youth and his lost love. In this traditional theatrical adaptation of Charles Dickens’s story, Scrooge is visited by the spirits of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Yet to Come in A Christmas Carol. Carolers sing fragments of joyous Christmas songs in the corners of Scrooge’s mind as the audience accompanies him on the street and joins him on his dream-journey. The visiting spirits of Christmas force Scrooge to confront people and scenes from his life that remind him of his friendlessness – he even sees his home and his future corpse being rifled by his own servants. Finally, he awakens to the reality of Christmas morning and discovers the joy of giving, loving, and caring for others. The costumes, based on fashions of nineteenth-century London, provide color and texture against the abstract setting of Scrooge's life of greed and isolation.
