Hasselbring stays true to Dickens in his adaptation of the best known Christmas story of all time. Many adaptations simplify the story, but Hasselbring includes all the special moments and characters that truly reveal the struggles of 1880’s London from “Want” and “Ignorance” clinging to the Second Sprit to the chimney sweeps on the street and Old Joe in his den of thieves. Along with the hardships and dreariness come the brilliance and joys that “A Christmas Carol” brings to the holiday spirit when Mankind is everyone’s business and the singing of carols and sharing of food and spirit lift our souls with the hope that charity thrives throughout the year. As in all the best adaptations, your audiences will both loathe and love Ebenezer and delight in his reclamation. No matter how many times we share the moment when the Cratchits receive their Christmas turkey and Tim proclaims “God bless us, every one”, audiences will forever embrace and cherish this timeless tale of a heartless scrooge who is given a second chance to become the kind of human we all strive to be. $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
