“A Christmas Carol” By Charles Dickens, adapted for Reader’s Theatre by Tony Palermo and directed by Kathleen Bell

This is the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an old man, who is well-known for his miserly ways.On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by a series of ghosts, starting with his old business partner, Jacob Marley. The three spirits which follow, the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet to Come, show Scrooge how his mean behaviour has affected those around him. At the end of the story he is relieved to discover that there is still time for him to change and we see him transformed into a generous and kind-hearted human being.
