In this creative retelling of a holiday classic, we meet all of our favorite colorful Dickens characters such as Jacob Marley, Nephew Fred, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, and most importantly, Ebeneezer Scrooge. Ebeneezer Scrooge hates Christmas, particularly because tidings and good cheer threaten his coin purse. But fortunately for Mr. Scrooge, three ghosts interrupt his slumber to give him some timely perspective through glimpses of his own past, present, and future. In one night, Scrooge learns the importance of love, generosity, and holiday spirit. FlagShakes revitalizes this classic play with their characteristic actor-driven style for a second year in a row, and it is soon to become an important Flagstaff holiday tradition!
The play, adapted by Claire Wittman and directed by Hannah Fontes, contains all the familiar aspects that make FlagShakes stand out: beautifully arranged singing, dancing, an actor-driven script and a dedication to audience interaction. – MacKenzie Chase, The Daily Sun
