A Christmas Carol (Gaines)
by Frederick Gaines
Based on the novel by Charles Dickens
This classic Christmas tale is re-energized to include a doll toting girl, and recreate the role of Ebenezer Scrooge making him less an evil tyrant and more a gentle old man with psychological hang-ups. This interpretation of a Christmas Carol leans toward being a study of the character of Scrooge while still playing out our favorite Holiday tale of the magic of Christmas.
