THE STORY: This quick-change, cross-dressing version of the Charles Dickens classic is set in a Victorian music hall. The Royal Music Hall Twenty-Member Variety Players are beset with a widespread case of food poisoning. This leaves only three surviving members to soldier on through a performance of A Christmas Carol. The undaunted trio gamely face missed cues, ill-fitting costumes, and solving the problem of having no one to play Tiny Tim. Done in the style of British Music Hall, SCROOGE IN ROUGE abounds in bad puns, bawdy malapropisms, naughty double-entendres, and witty songs. A raucous holiday treat!
“Uproarious entertainment; a brilliantly constructed funhouse that works on so many levels, it is positively Pirandellian!” —Times-Picayune (New Orleans). “It’s a romp that should become an annual tradition.” —Style Weekly (Richmond, VA).
