A Brand New Holiday Musical

Hope you had a joyful Thanksgiving, despite all our new restrictions.

In keeping with the need to stay safe, while yearning for entertainment for the whole family, I want to tell you about a wonderful thing to do to kick off the holiday season. Watch Estella Scrooge: A Christmas Carol with a Twist, a brand-new musical, custom made for this time of year:

This is an updated version of the holiday classic, with a unique new plot line.

The book is by John Caird, with music and lyrics by Paul Gordon, and it is directed by John Caird.

Pivoting from a stage musical to a filmed presentation, the producers employed innovative technology to keep all actors and creatives safe from Covid.

This important note is posted on the show’s website:

When theater shuttered on March 12, 2020, no one could have predicted that stage doors would be locked and onstage works would cease, for a term of time that no one could have anticipated.

This past summer, we came together to see if we could re-imagine the process of realizing a musical theater production.

Knowing the challenges and restrictions that came with the arrival of Covid19, we assembled a team of award-winning creatives to bring Estella Scrooge: A Christmas Carol With A Twist to life, by digitally capturing the production in a unique and unprecedented way,  one actor at a time.

We hope that the finished project brings vitality into a distressed industry and will inspire the exploration of new ways to bring the life-changing power of theater to all.

Estella Scrooge stars Betsy Wolfe, Clifton Duncan, Lauren Patten, Patrick Page, Carolee Carmello and Danny Burstein.
