Repertory Philippines proudly announces its special holiday treat for the entire family with the new production of Scrooge the Musical.
This is an adaptation by renowned writer-composer-lyricist Leslie Bricusse of the classic short story A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. The story is about the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge who undergoes a profound experience of redemption over the course of a Christmas Eve night, after being visited by the ghost of his former partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.
Scrooge the Musical is set to open on November 21, 2014 at Onstage, 2/F, Greenbelt 1, Paseo de Roxas cor. Legazpi St., Makati City.

The cast of Scrooge the Musical and the characters they portray are as follows:
Miguel Faustmann and Chinggoy Alonso will alternately play the role of Ebenezer Scrooge – a stingy, chilly, cowardly, grumpy and money-hungry businessman. While he is much more benevolent than before his “caroling” experience, he is still uncertain as to the reason behind generosity in general.

Cara Barredo plays the role of Ghost of Christmas Past – the first of the spirits foretold by Marley who shows Scrooge his past Christmases.
Oliver Usison plays the role of Ghost of Christmas Present – the second of the spirits foretold by Marley that shows Scrooge Christmas celebrations in the present time.
