A Christmas Carol SynopsisEbenezer Scrooge isn’t interested in kindness - money is his priority, and he’s reticent to give his employee Bob Cratchit even one day off to celebrate Christmas with his family, including sickly Tiny Tim. On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his old colleague Jacob Marley, who has a warning: before the night is out, three more ghosts will appear, to show Scrooge what has been, what is, and what could be if he doesn’t change his ways. Soon, the famous miser discovers that beneath a cold exterior, his heart is beginning to thaw.
Charles Dickens’ classic story about the importance of charity and kindness has held a warm place in our hearts for over 170 years, with countless adaptations bringing mean old Scrooge, chipper Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come to life for new generations.
