Scrooge in Rouge


An English Music Hall Christmas Carol
Book and Lyrics by Ricky Graham
Additional Material by Jeffery Roberson
Other Interesting Bits by Yvette Hargis
Original Music Composed by Jefferson Turner
Directed by Clint Thornton

When the “Royal Music Hall Variety Players” come to perform, “A Christmas Carol”, a bad case of food poisoning leaves only three surviving members to soldier on through a performance originally intended for a cast of twenty!

If you loved Every Christmas Story Ever Told, get ready for Scrooge in Rouge!

This quick-witted, cross-dressing version of the Charles Dickens classic, done in the style of the British Music Hall, abounds in bad puns, bawdy humor, and witty songs.

Scrooge in Rouge proves to be a delightful shared experience… encouraging waves of laughter with its well-timed one-liners and treasure trove of double-entendres.” – Richmond Times-Dispatch.
