Ebenezer Scrooge is a penny-pinching miser in the first degree. He particularly detests Christmas which he views as 'a time for finding yourself a year older, and not an hour richer'. Scrooge is visited, on Christmas Eve, by the ghost of his former partner Jacob Marley who died seven Christmas Eves ago. Marley, a miser from the same mold as Scrooge, is suffering the consequences in the afterlife and hopes to help Scrooge avoid his fate. He tells Scrooge that he will be haunted by three spirits. These three spirits take the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge on a journey through his past, present and future where he learns the true meaning of Christmas and life. This traditional re-telling of Charles Dickens’ timeless classic will enchant you and your family!

Casting requirements call for several roles of all ages for children and adults. Auditioners will be expected to read from the script of the role for which they are auditioning. Auditioners are also encouraged to contact Landmark in advance to confirm their interest; however, walk-ins are welcome.
