From the creative team that brought you the indie film Scrooge & Marley, a modern day, queer variation on Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, comes this fully realized musical version reimagined for the stage. Scrooge & Marley: The Musical follows the familiar outline of the beloved tale of Ebenezer “Ben” Scrooge – the man who hates the holidays and who is reformed after memorable visits by three ghostly spirits.

Traveling from Scrooge’s youth in the disco era of the 1970s to Christmas, 2015, the year that same sex marriage was legalized in the US, the magic of Dicken’s timeless tale comes alive from a fresh perspective in this joyous, heartfelt musical adaptation.

Music for Scrooge & Marley: The Musical has been composed by Lisa McQueen (Music Director of Second City, The Annoyance and the film composer of Scrooge & Marley) with Lyrics by Richard Knight, Jr. (Scrooge & Marley's co-writer/co-director), and script by Knight and Ellen Stoneking (Scrooge & Marley's lead writer). Scott Ferguson (Schoolhouse Rock Live!) directs this premiere one night staged musical reading event.
