SYNOPSIS:

Book by Duane Poole / Music by Larry Grossman / Lyrics by Kellen Blair

A year after the events of A Christmas Carol, the four ghosts (Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future) return with a new goal: to reunite the new and improved Ebenezer Scrooge with his long-lost first love, Belle. All of Dickens’ familiar characters return in this romantic and festive sequel to the perennial classic. The charming score, with lyrics by Kellen Blair and music by Larry Grossman (Snoopy!!!), features the songs “Carol (Like A Person In Love),” “You’re Safe With Me,” “The Hours In Between,” “Happier,” and “You Can’t Put A Price On Love.”

DIRECTED BY REBECCA ANTONAKOS BELANGER / MUSICAL DIRECTION BY KEITH BELANGER
