Ebenezer Scrooge is a mean-spirited, miserly old man, sitting in his counting-house on a cold Christmas Eve.
His clerk, Bob Cratchit, shivers in his room because Scrooge refuses to spend money on heating coals for a fire. Scrooge’s nephew, Fred, pays his uncle a visit inviting him to his annual Christmas party, “Bah! Humbug!” is his response to his nephew’s “Merry Christmas!” A gentlewoman asks Scrooge for a contribution to her charity. Scrooge reacts to the holiday visitor with bitterness and venom!
Later that evening, after returning to his dark, cold apartment, Scrooge receives a chilling visitation from the ghost of his dead partner, Jacob Marley. Marley, looking haggard and pallid, relates his unfortunate story. As punishment for his greedy and self-serving life his spirit has been condemned to wander the Earth weighted down with heavy chains. Marley hopes to save Scrooge from sharing the same fate and informs Scrooge that three spirits will be visiting him…
The ghost of Christmas Past. The ghost of Christmas Present. And the ghost of Christmas Yet To Come.
