This quick-change version of the Charles Dickens classic is set in a Victorian music hall. The Royal Music Hall Twenty-Member Variety Players are plagued with a widespread case of food poisoning. This leaves only three surviving members to soldier on through a performance of A Christmas Carol. The undismayed trio bravely face missed cues, ill-fitting costumes, and solving the problem of having no one to play Tiny Tim. Done in the style of British Music Hall, Scrooge in Rouge is overflowing with bad puns, naughty double-entendres, and witty songs. A raucous holiday treat!
