Plot Synopsis:
The Holiday Classic has a twist! This fresh approach to the classic tale faithfully conveys the magic of Dickens. On Christmas Eve in 1843 friends and family gathered at Dickens' home ask him to tell a story, but he refuses to work on Christmas Eve. If there is going to be a story, each must take a part in its telling. And so, the story unfolds with the cast of 10 playing over 40 parts.
