Music and Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse
Adapted from "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens
A musical on a grand scale - a rollicking frolicking feast of entertainment.
In 1970, renowned writer/composer/lyricist Leslie Bricusse adapted the classic Charles Dickens tale A Christmas Carol into the hit screen musical Scrooge. Now available as a charming stage musical, Scrooge has enjoyed a hugely successful tour of England and a season at London’s Dominion Theatre starring the late Anthony Newley. Included are six new songs not performed in the film. This sure-fire audience pleaser is available in two versions: as a full-length musical and in a fifty-five-minute adaptation that is ideal for small theatre groups and schools, where it can be performed as a short play or as part of a seasonal concert. Selected pieces from the most popular musical numbers are included in the shortened adaptation.
