Musical Theatre West presents story about Scrooge, only this one is called Estella, not Ebenezer. But she has a lot in common with her storied ancestor!
The story follows Estella Scrooge, a modern-day Wall Street tycoon with a penchant for foreclosing. A hotelier in her hometown of Pickwick, Ohio has defaulted on his mortgage and Estella fancies the idea of lowering the boom personally. Arriving at Harthouse on Christmas Eve, Estella discovers that the defaulting party is her childhood friend Pip Nickleby. A good and generous soul, Pip has transformed the property into a refuge for the sick, dispossessed and homeless. A freak snowstorm forces Estella to take refuge. That night, just as it happened to her ancestor Ebenezer, she is haunted by three visitations…and oh, what uninvited house guests they are!
This modern day take on Charles Dickens’ beloved 1843 novella, A Christmas Carol, Estella Scrooge also incorporates elements from Dickens’ other great novels, Great Expectations, Little Dorrit and Bleak House, among others.
Tickets are $30 for 72-hour viewing for each household, or $45 for a VIP Premium Theatre Experience, which includes unlimited viewings, a download of the CD and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.
