SYNOPSIS

 

“I’m having the worst day you could possibly imagine, so bad in

fact that it’s almost funny. I’ve lost all of the orphanages money

and may well lose the orphanage itself, I have pieces of Danish

pastry stuck in my hair and in other places I can’t begin to describe,

I’m wearing slippers outdoors in winter, I have a ladder in my

tights so big the fire department could rescue kittens from trees

with it, I just this morning found out that the man of my dreams

has seen more women than a bingo caller, my head is full of gunk

and my stomach feels like it’s about to fall out of me, so please

do something because I think I might be losing my mind!” 

 

Elisabeth Scrooge is a musical Christmastime tragi-comedy

written for seven female principals, three male principals and

chorus, though several of the female cast can be gender switched

to male characters. Due to the nature of some of the dialogue

and the more adult themes the play touches upon it is intended

for an older teen to adult cast; however several children are

required for small roles.

 

The story follows the fate of Elisabeth Scrooge, the Great-Great-Great Granddaughter of Ebenezer Scrooge. It is Christmas eve and the kind, selfless Elisabeth is battling with a raging flu, dealing with another failed attempt to win the heart of the man of her dreams and worst of all, facing the impending closure of the Paradise Orphanage which she runs. Due to a series of terrible events and the machinations of the corrupt Mrs Fenwick, a heartless business woman who owns most of the town, Elisabeth’s life falls crashing apart, causing her to renounce charity and good will. Cut to a year later and, having become the very essence of Dickens’ selfish, heartless character, Elisabeth’s only hope for redemption lies in the visitation of her ancestor Ebenezer, and of the three ghosts of Christmases past, present and future.

 

“Elisabeth Scrooge” is full of hilarious dialogue, heart-tugging moments and, like all good Christmas

stories, just a sprinkling of corporate corruption.
