ESTELLA SCROOGE is a new holiday musical that uniquely blends theater, film and cutting-edge animation. In the story, Estella, a Wall Street tycoon and a direct descendent of Ebenezer Scrooge, travels to her hometown of Pickwick, Ohio on Christmas Eve to foreclose on one of her company's investments. When she arrives, she discovers that the defaulting party is none other than her childhood friend Pip Nickleby, a kind and gentle soul who has transformed the Harthouse Hotel into a refuge for the sick, dispossessed and homeless. When a snowstorm forces Estella to stay the night, she is haunted by surprise visitors from her past, present and future who try to show her the error of her ways and...well...give her the Dickens! Part love story, part ghost story, part social satire, the enchanting script by John Caird and Paul Gordon smartly, almost imperceptibly, brings together characters and themes from "A Christmas Carol," "Great Expectations," "Oliver Twist," "Little Dorritt," and other Dickens classics - creating a sort of treasure hunt for fans of the beloved and brilliant author. ESTELLA SCROOGE features a cast of 24 Broadway Veterans! Including Betsy Wolfe (Bullets Over Broadway/Waitress), Clifton Duncan (The Play That Goes Wrong), Tony nominees Lauren Patten (Jagged Little Pill), Patrick Page (Hadestown), Carolee Carmello (Mamma Mia!) and Danny Burstein (Moulin Rouge!) Book by John Caird and Paul Gordon, Music and Lyrics by Paul Gordon , Direction by John Caird
