ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Poor Ebenezer Scrooge. It is Christmas Eve and everyone in London is finding merriment in the season except for the miserly soul who moves through the chambers that once belonged to his deceased partner. But when the Ghost of Jacob Marley suddenly appears, and is followed in rapid succession by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come, Scrooge’s cynical world is turned upside down as he sees who he was, who he is, and what he may hope to become. This musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic tale strips the story down to its essence while adding seventeen songs that speak to the heart and to the holidays. Running 90 minutes with no intermission, it follows the transformation of a man of business into a person who truly understands that mankind is his one and only business.

“This original, 90-minute musical by Chicagoan Douglas Post is filled with delightfully familiar characters, as well as plenty of color, lyrical harmony and Christmas cheer to spice up every theatergoers’ holiday season.” - Chicago Theatre & Concert Reviews

“A tight new musical retelling of Dickens with a focus on the real business of life.” - Chicagoland Musical Theatre

“The musical structure immediately sets the play apart and there are many times when the songs take moments of the familiar script to heights they have rarely reached in other productions." - Chicago On Stage

“A delightful family entertainment that is perfect for the holiday season.” - Chicago Theater and the Arts

“Douglas Post is one of our most reliable playwrights and I’m delighted to see that he’s taken on the challenge of Dickens and the holidays.” - WDCB Radio
