Appropriate for secondary campuses (junior high/high schools) or private companies, this adaptation of Charles Dickens' A CHRISTMAS CAROL is written as a One-Act Play (about 25 minutes long). This current-day version is set in a school just as the students are to end the semester and begin their Christmas holidays. While one option is for all dialogue to be performed live (with the exception of some fun yet haunting sound cues), another option is to prerecord some of the speaking roles and have the lead characters and a few others interact with the audio. The recorded cast members still physically perform their roles behind masks throughout each live performance. Crew members' talents are also showcased from prerecording cues to executing the effects throughout each show. By purchasing the script, teachers/directors are permitted to personalize and print the necessary number of copies. Please do not share outside of your group. Royalty-free performances are my personal gift to you, esp. if benefiting education and the arts.
