Scene 1: Scrooge’s Office

 

Bob Cratchet: Oh, it’s so cold in here. And it’s Christmas Eve. Mr. Scrooge, can I put some coal on the fire Sir?

 

Scrooge: Nonsense. Coal costs money. Do you want to make me a poor man? Now, let’s see. Mr. Smith has not paid his rent.

 

Bob Cratchet: But it’s not right to evict people on Christmas Sir.

 

Scrooge: What rubbish you say!

 

(Door opens and Scrooge’s nephew enters)

 

Scrooge’s nephew: A Merry Christmas, Uncle Scrooge.

 

Scrooge: Bah, humbug.

 

Scrooge’s nephew: Here’s a present, Uncle Scrooge.

 

Scrooge: Bah, humbug. Get away with you and your present.

 

(Scrooge pushes him out the door.)

 

Scrooge: And away with you too, Cratchet.

 

Bob Cratchet: I was wondering, Sir, if I could have a holiday tomorrow because it’s Christmas?

 

Scrooge: Christmas! Bah, humbug! Be here as usual at 7 o’ clock.

 

(Scrooge goes to bed on some chairs and starts snoring)

 

(Marley enters)

 

Marley: S-C-R-O-O-G-E, S-C-R-O-O-G-E

 

Scrooge: Ah, Marley! What are you doing here? You died 15 years ago.

 

Marley: I am a ghost, and see what heavy chains I carry! We were business partners and only cared for money. Now I suffer for it. Change Scrooge or you’ll end up like me. Tonight, you’ll be visited by 3 ghosts. C-H-A-N-G-E

 

(Marley disappears and Scrooge wakes up)

 

Scrooge: Bah, humbug. It was only a dream.

 

 

Scene 2- Bob Cratchet’s home

 

Cratchet’s wife: But I tell you Bob, tomorrow is Christmas. You should not have to go to work.

 

Tiny Tim: Hello Daddy.

 

Bob Cratchet: But we need money to pay for Tiny Tim’s doctor. I must go to work or Mr. Scrooge will fire me.

 

Cratchet’s wife: Oh, that old MR. Scrooge is so mean.

 

(Tiny Tim tries to walk and falls)

 

(Bob and his wife both run to pick him up)

 

 

Scene 3: Scrooge’s Bedroom

 

(Scrooge is sleeping and the Ghost of Christmas Past enters)

 

Ghost of Christmas Past: Wake up, Scrooge. I am the Ghost of Christmas Past. We must do some traveling.

 

(The Ghost takes him by the arm and leads him out of the room. Scrooge’s girlfriend enters and sits on a chair crying.)

 

(Scrooge and the Ghost re-enter.)

 

Scrooge: Oh, that was when I was 26. That used to be my girlfriend. She wanted to marry me but all I cared about then was money. We broke up. That’s why she’s crying.

 

Ghost of Christmas Past: Do you wish you had married her, Scrooge?

 

Scrooge: Yes, I do.

 

(The Ghost and Girlfriend leave the room, and Scrooge wakes up.)

 

Scrooge: Oh, another dream. Bah, humbug.

 

(Scrooge goes back to sleep.)

 

 

 

(The Ghost of Christmas Present enters. He is laughing and happy.)

 

Ghost of Christmas Present: Wake up Scrooge. Come with me.

 

Scrooge: Where are we going?

 

Ghost of Christmas Present: To your nephew’s. Hold on to my coat.

 

(They exit the room. Turn on the lights and set a scene for a Christmas party. Everyone is eating and drinking.)

 

Scrooge’s nephew: Let’s have a toast.

 

Everyone: For who?

 

Scrooge’s nephew: Why. To merry old Uncle Scrooge!

 

Everyone: But he’s so mean.

 

Scrooge’s nephew: All the more reason. To Scrooge!

 

(Everyone drinks)

 

Ghost of Christmas Present: Isn’t Christmas jolly, Scrooge?

 

Scrooge: It seems so, Ghost.

 

Ghost of Christmas Present: Well, I must leave you now.

 

(Dim the lights and Scrooge finds himself in his bedroom.)

 

Scrooge: I wonder when the next ghost will arrive.

 

(The Ghost of Christmas to come enters wearing black.)

 

Scrooge: Are you the Ghost of Christmas to Come?

 

(Ghost of Christmas to come nods)

 

Scrooge: What are you going to show me?

 

(Ghost of Christmas to come points and Scrooge sees Tiny Tim’s crutches.)

 

Scrooge: Oh, no Ghost. Is he dead?

 

(Ghost of Christmas to come points to gravestone and Scrooge sees his name. Scrooge kneels and holds Ghost’s leg.)

 

Scrooge: Oh no, Ghost, I can change, Oh no!

 

(Ghost of Christmas to come leaves and Scrooge wakes up to find himself holding a chair’s leg.)

 

Scrooge: Why, I’m alive. And it’s morning, Christmas morning.

 

(Turkey boy enters)

 

Scrooge: You there?

 

Turkey Boy: Me sir?

 

Scrooge: Yes, you. Go and buy me the biggest turkey in the grocery.

 

Turkey Boy: Yes Sir.

 

(Scrooge and Turkey Boy exit)

 

 

Scene 4: Bob Cratchet’s home

 

(Knock, knock, knock)

 

Cratchet’s wife: Who’s there?

 

Scrooge: A visitor.

 

Cratchet’s wife: Come in.

 

(Scrooge enters and gives the turkey to Mrs. Cratchet)

 

Scrooge: I hope you and Bob and Tiny Tim call all have a very Merry Christmas.

 

Cratchet’s wife, Bob, and Tiny Tim: Thank you, Uncle Scrooge. Merry Christmas too.
