“A Christmas Carol: Scrooge and Marley” sings a slightly different tune than the original Charles Dickens’ story.For instance, Marley does not appear in just one scene as a gloomy, depressed spirit, warning Ebenezer Scrooge of what is in store for him Christmas Eve night. No, Marley appears on the stage numerous times as the narrator. This Marley cracks jokes, plays a prank on Scrooge and jauntily wears a bowler hat decorated with a piece of holly.Additionally, Christmas festivities are actively celebrated with holiday carolers parading up and down the aisles and stage, singing popular Christmas songs.Despite a few variations, the story does not stray from Dickens’ original story of a miser getting a hard lesson about the significance of Christmas and his attitude toward life.Scrooge (Grady Hughes) is a mean, stingy, accountant who is cold to everyone, from his kind clerk, Bob Cratchit (Pete Sandford) to his vibrant nephew, Fred (Don Monteith).However, visits from three spirits transport Scrooge through time, and what he sees and learns results in a dramatic change.This is a classic tale, no matter how many times it gets told; “A Christmas Carol” is also a treat to see and offers a lesson everyone can benefit from.A standout in the cast is Hughes, who does a great job being a real grouch.
