Scrooge!  Oh, what a tight-fisted hand at the grind- stone! A squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous, old sinner!  Hard and sharp as flint, from which no steel had ever struck out generous fire; secret, and self-contained, and solitary as an oyster.  Nobody ever stopped him on the street.  No beggars implored him to bestow a trifle.  No children spoke to him.  Even seeing eye-dogs pulled their masters across the street when they saw him coming.

What did Scrooge care?  He liked it!  To edge his way along the crowded paths of life warning all others to keep their distance and cause all others to call him “nuts”.  Until, that is, this Christmas.

Scrooge is about to be visited by a host of zany characters whisking him away to visit his past, present, and future.  Sucking him from his selfish lonely existence inciting him to consider a change of heart before he faces an eternity of regret. It is a fun and lively retelling of Dicken’s classic filled with some local twists.
