|A Christmas Carol
The ever-popular Christmas story has been adapted for a cast that can be as few as 12 or can be expanded to accommodate larger casts. It combines the ghost of Marley with the Ghost of Future Past and requires only one child performer as Tiny Tim (though additional children can be added). It combines new songs with traditional songs, hymns and carols and has a total of 20 songs. The other two ghosts can be played by women or men. High quality backing tracks are available, as well as orchestrations for a pit band of 6 to 10.
