This is a delightful musical adaptation of Charles Dickens' novel 'A Christmas Carol'. 'Scrooge' is an enchanting tale of the cold, callous and uncompromising Ebenezer Scrooge (Finney) as he undergoes a sequence of events that will change his attitude towards Christmas spirit and goodwill forever.
Meet a host of entertaining and captivating characters as Scrooge encounters another realm, the night before Christmas. Marley's Ghost and the spirits of Christmas past, present and future come to life amid a medley of lively songs by Academy Award-winning composer Leslie Briscue (Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory). Musical highlights include "You...You", Scrooge's sad contemplation of losing the love of his life and "Thank You Very Much" a catchy musical finale.
Throughout the much loved plot Finney gives an inspiring performance as twisted and gnarled Ebenezer Scrooge under the meticulous direction of Ronald Neame. The seasoned cast provide excellent performances as the featured members of the spirit world in this wonderful musical extravaganza that boasts lavish sets, and impressive storytelling to impart perhaps the best adaptation of this tale so far!
