27th, 28th, 29th & 30th DECEMBER
Put yourself in Ebenezer Scrooge’s shoes for a moment………. You’ve had a really hard day doing what misers do – making lots of money and lots of people’s lives miserable as a result – especially those of your office clerk Bob Cratchit, and your Housekeeper, Dame Scratchit. After a day of grumping for England, you look forward to an evening with some time for yourself (pretty much like every other because you haven’t any friends to socialise with) – and what happens?
Well, first you get a visit from your ex-business partner Jacob Marley. This is a surprise, as he’s been dead for several years. His ghost warns you to change your ways or end up like him. Do you listen? Course not! Then the spirit of Christmas Past pays you a visit. You see what you were like before the curtain came down on your happy self. Are you upset in any way? Nah….. not really! Next, the spirit of Christmas Present pops in, to show you how your behaviour affects other people around you. Does it make any difference? Not a lot….. Finally, the spirit of Christmas Yet To Come arrives, and takes you to see what’s in the future. NOW you’re frightened. NOW you really want to change…..
When you wake up on Christmas Day, you give thanks, put right a lot of wrongs, make a difference to the people you care about and turn your life around completely. There are a couple of great twists in the storyline - and It paves the way for the happiest ending of all!
