SCROOGE: THE MUSICAL, a charming stage adaptation of the classic Charles Dickens story A Christmas Carol, closes Newtown Arts Company’s 32nd season December 4 to 10 at the historic Newtown Theatre. A holiday treat for the whole family, this tale of redemption follows miserly Ebeneezer Scrooge as he surveys his life with the help of his dead partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet-to-Come.
With book, music and lyrics by renowned British writer-composer-lyricist Leslie Bricusse, SCROOGE: THE MUSICAL is based on the hit 1970 screen musical “Scrooge!” starring Albert Finney. The multi-talented Bricusse was nominated for Oscar and Golden Globe awards for both the score and the song “Thank You Very Much.” Other memorable musical numbers in the show include “I Hate People,” “December the Twenty-Fifth” and “I’ll Begin Again.”
Directed by Mary Liz Ivins, with musical direction by Mike Dettra, the cast features Stuart Myles (Scrooge), Joe McKernan (Jacob Marley), Anne McKernan (Ghost of Christmas Past), Jack McKernan (Ghost of Christmas Future) and Bob Abrahamson (Bob Crachit), all of Newtown; John Wolodzko (Ghost of Christmas Present) of Yardley; and Nicholas Epps (Tiny Tim) of Hamilton, N.J.
