SHOW SYNOPSIS
A twist on the holiday classic, Tiny Tim hatches a plan to get his father home for Christmas Day. With the help of some kindly street vendors and his friend Charlotte, Tim stages a spectacle filled with ghosts and Christmas cheer to convince Scrooge to honor Christmas. It all seems to be going according to plan until a little bit of real Christmas magic catches everyone by surprise. The play is set on a street in London in 1843; commercial district of the city, bustling with activity.

Tiny Tim – a young man of 15 years. Poor but fresh-faced and optimistic.
Charlotte – a young woman of 14 years. Tim’s friend. Resilient and tom-boyish.
