A Christmas Carol and Hamlet blend together to create a festive favorite with a twist – add a generous splash of monologuing, sprinkle with skulls, and enjoy! The Scarolers (dead carolers) will greet you to get you in the mood for this tale of greed, indecision, and redemption. Then we follow the adventures of Scrooglet, a tight-fisted old miser as he is haunted by his dead partner, Jacob Yorick. Together they travel though time to visit past, present, and future Christmases. Along the way, they see Scrooglet’s old love, Ophelia, the home and family of his clerk, Horatio Cratchit, and the future of Scrooglet’s counting house and skull. After his time travels, Scrooglet must decide whether ’tis nobler in the mind to bah or not to bah humbug.
