This version of the Charles Dickens classic
is adapted by Dr. Jefferey Scott Elwell and follows Ebenezer Scrooge
on his exhilarating and terrifying journey to discover the true
meaning of Christmas - with a twist at the end of the journey.
Larry L. Kubert,
Lincoln Journal Star, says...
"Like a breath of fresh air... A different, delightful production of
'A Christmas Carol'... Elwell's script injects a keenly appreciated
sense of anticipation into the weary old yarn...
This 'Christmas Carol' is fun and fast-moving, albeit a tad
shadowy.  In other words - an unmitigated delight."
