I began writing Ebenezer Scrooge the Musical as a response to another musical about Scrooge I had recently seen. While watching that production, the lack of sorrow I felt at Tiny Tim’s death bothered me – I hadn’t felt any sorrow near to what I believe I would have felt if Tiny Tim were my son.
I am a songwriter. In the ensuing days, “The Cratchit’s Grief” began to take form. Upon its completion, I decided to write a song about the fear Scrooge must have felt when he pleaded with the spirit for a 2nd chance and “Scrooge’s Final Plea” followed. Next came “A Possibility” and “Lost Love” which depict the falling in love & the breaking-up of Young Ebenezer Scrooge & his betrothed. One song led to another . . . and within 2 ½ years an entire musical was born. Charles Dickens' story had spoken to me.
With financial support from my husband's (Kerry) personal savings account, we hired James Stevens to complete all of the orchestral tracks –
21 songs in all. His masterful orchestration gave my songs a newfound richness. The songs sounded so good, that we hired him to do an entire album complete with voices. Today, I couldn't be happier with the outcome.
The performance of Ebenezer Scrooge the Musical is now one of the best fundraisers for our school's music program. We have performed it for 6 seasons in total, and the community, kids, and I look forward to it year after year. I like to imagine Charles Dickens in the audience thoroughly enthralled at the extension of his work. Nice thought.
