Faith Martin is happily married to the football coach. A rally is scheduled for the eve of the big game. But it's the night that Julian, Faith's old friend, is to appear in a program of readings resulting in instant conflict between the Athletic and Speech departments. Faith finds herself in the middle when Miss Speare of Speech accuses her of "carrying on" with Julian. Also Faith's rich aunt who's never met her husband is arriving. If her aunt approves, all will be well. Then, in the middle of dinner preparations, the Martins' maid quits. Faith convinces Julian to masquerade as the new maid — then another new maid appears and another and another — until there are five pretend maids!
In 1970, renowned writer-composer-lyricist Leslie Bricusse adapted the classic Charles Dickens tale, A Christmas Carol, into the hit screen musical Scrooge! Adapted for the stage with six additional songs, this sure-fire audience pleaser portrays the transformation of a bitterly unhappy miser, whose motto is “Bah! Humbug,” into a generous and loving soul – with the help of the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future and the beloved Tiny Tim. Musical numbers include “I Hate Christmas,” “Make the Most of this Life,” and “I’ll Begin Again.”
