A Fairy Tale Christmas Carol!

POSTER.png

Everyone’s favorite classic holiday tale gets the fractured fairy-tale treatment.  All the famous fairy-tale characters take on  the memorable roles of Dickens’s A Christmas Carol.
 
The Big Bad Wolf (as Ebenezer Scrooge) meets his old business partner Jacob Midas (Marley), who could turn anything to gold.  Midas warns Big Bad that he’ll be visited by The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, played by a Fairy Godmother, Old King Cole, and the Queen of Hearts! 

The ghosts make Scrooge realize what a scoundrel he’s been to the Charming (or Crachit) family — including Prince Philip, Cinderella and their kids, Hansel, Gretel, and Tabitha, their Little Match Girl — and help him to remember what the Christmas spirit is all about. 

This fun-filled adaptation stays true to the warmth and heart of the classic.
