Scrooge's Long Night, is an original adaptation based on the classic Dickens tale, touring local elementary schools this season. The production integrates the Six Pillars of Character into the story, as well as connections to the California Content Standards & Framework for English, Social Science & The Performing Arts. The 40-minute presentation is designed specifically for children and families, with 4 Actors creating more then 12 characters with theatrical magic and costume changes, puppetry, music, special effects, and guided participation from the audience. Because of our support, we are able offer this program to our schools and community at a fraction of the cost for similar programs.
