Scrooge ... A Ghost Of A Chance - By Sheila Wilson
This musical has grown and grown in popularity. It’s a great chance to perform a Dickens classic (‘A Christmas Carol’), with the play and lyrics written by Colin Baker (of ‘Doctor Who’ fame) and the music written by Sheila in her trademark style! Colin has also written expert staging instructions.
It is ideal for KS2 & KS3 although can be used by KS1-2 or confident KS1’s. It really could be used by all ages, from child to adult, and it provides a wide range of singing, dancing and acting opportunities (and scenery production!). There is an opportunity written in to the play to include a KS1 song or complete Nativity, for schools or churches wishing to combine the two.
The cast has 25 in it, although that number can be extended. There are 11 songs, which are quite substantial, yet easy to pick up, and they combine with the excellent story and play to make a very effective performance. The CD provides the songs and excellent backing tracks.
