World Under Wonder Playhouse presents its Winter musical, Scrooge: The Musical! this is the second year for this production.
The movie and the play are both adaptations of the classic story A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens set in the Victorian era that has become a fascination of our holiday celebrations for quite some time. Christmas cards and decorations with a “Dickens” setting have become as much Americana to us as Norman Rockwell.
The original story presents a sharp contrast of gloom and happiness. It is set in 1860s London, a time that was, for the most part and for the most people, pretty gloomy and grim. But the poor and downtrodden were brightened by our vision of their Christmas time of cheer and good will to all. In the well known tale the mean spirited Scrooge is visited by a series of ghosts who bring him to a miraculous holiday transformation. The story and its characters of ghosts and the always lovable Tiny Tim is amazingly well known, even if the stage version is not.
This production is in memory of David Roberts, the father of the Executive Director and Founder of the World Under Wonder, Sean Roberts, who passed away in 2017. Watching the film Scrooge each Christmas was a tradition of the family. When David passed away, it was hard on the whole family and Sean wishes to remember him this way. This production will be put on for 5 years all together as a community winter tradition. We hope you will come out to support this production.
