Jacob Marley dies at midnight on Christmas Eve. His business partner, Ebenezer Scrooge, does not shed a tear. He wants to bury Jacob quickly, cheaply and return to the business of making money. Scrooge is unkind to everyone. He refuses to spend Christmas with his nephew, will not donate money to charity to help the poor and cuts the wages of his loyal Clerk, Bob Cratchit.

Scrooge is visited by the ghost of Jacob Marley who warns him if he does not change his ways he will be doomed forever! Three ghosts will visit Scrooge: The Ghost of Christmas Past, The Ghost of Christmas Present and The Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come. Scrooge is terrified!

The Ghost of Christmas Past takes Scrooge on a journey where he sees himself as a lonely child, an apprentice clerk and a young man in love. The Ghost of Christmas Present shows him Bob Cratchit’s poor, struggling family and takes him to see his nephew celebrating Christmas. The Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come scares him the most by showing visions of his death.

When Scrooge wakes on Christmas Day, he is relieved to be back in his own bed. The ghosts have taught him the error of his ways. He is full of relief, joy and excitement. He buys the biggest turkey for the Cratchit family, apologises to people he has offended and spends Christmas Day with his nephew!
