“Scrooge: The Musical" closely follows the plot of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol." The miserly Ebenezer Scrooge undergoes a profound redemption and learns the true meaning of Christmas during the course of a Christmas Eve night. Scrooge is visited by the doomed ghost of his former business partner, Jacob Marley, who, covered in chains, explains to Scrooge that eternal suffering is directly related to greed and bad behavior while on Earth.
Marley warns Scrooge that unless he changes his ways he, too, will suffer the same fate. Marley tells Scrooge three spirits will visit him that night. The first one is the Spirit of Christmas Past. The second is the Spirit of Christmas Present. The final one is the Spirit of Christmas Yet-To-Come. Through reflection and revelation, Scrooge wakes up on Christmas Day a changed man.
