Scrooge-Poster-webPress Release:

Repertory Philippines  presents SCROOGE THE MUSICAL, its special holiday treat for the entire family beginning November 21, 2014 at Onstage, 2/F, Greenbelt 1, Paseo de Roxas cor. Legazpi St., Makati City.

The Charles Dicken’s classic tale “A Christmas Carol” comes to life with renowned writer-composer-lyricist Leslie Bricusse’s delightful interpretation in SCROOGE THE MUSICAL.  Set during Christmas in London, England, the musical closely follows the classic story with the miserly Ebenezer undergoing a profound experience of redemption over the course of a Christmas Eve night, after being visited by the ghost of his former partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.

The musical features a sparkling, tuneful score with traditional Christmas melodies complete with live music, dazzling choreography, and new surprises that will enthrall the children as the true meaning of Christmas is highlighted.

The Repertory Philippines’ production of SCROOGE THE MUSICAL will be directed by Ms. Baby Barredo, the company’s artistic director.

The cast of SCROOGE THE MUSICAL and the characters they portray are as follows:

Miguel Faustmann and Chinggoy Alonso will alternately play the role of Ebenezer Scrooge –  a stingy, chilly, cowardly, grumpy and money-hungry businessman. While he is much more benevolent than before his “caroling” experience, he is still uncertain as to the reason behind generosity in general.

Raul Montesa will play the role of Jacob Marley – the business partner of Scrooge who died seven years ago.

Cara Barredo plays the role of Ghost of Christmas Past – the first of the spirits foretold by Marley who shows Scrooge his past Christmases.

Oliver Usison plays the role of Ghost of Christmas Present – the second of the spirits foretold by Marley that shows Scrooge Christmas celebrations in the present time.

Dwight Angelo Vito Cruz plays the role of  Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come – the third spirit foretold by Marley that shows Scrooge Christmases in the Future.

Chino Veguillas plays the role of Bob Cratchit – Scrooge’s clerk.

Gabo Tiongson and Soleil Luna Bueno will alternately play the role of

Tiny Tim – the crippled son of the Cratchits who is the beneficiary of physical therapy paid for by Scrooge.
