13 years +


Scrooge is a cold-hearted, uncaring, greedy man who despises the poor, lives only for himself, and spares no time or thought for others. He miserably runs his accountant business as a harsh master, especially during Christmastime when he expects his poor and underpaid clerk, Bob Cratchit, to continue working long hours. Scrooge’s life is radically transformed after visits from three spirits of Christmas. As Scrooge journeys through the past, present, and future with the spirits, he decides it’s time to stop living only for himself and instead embrace his moral obligation to others.
This is a powerful redemption story and one man’s journey of overcoming greed and selfishness while learning what it truly means to embrace the Spirit of Christmas!
