Enjoy this sample from the audiodrama:
Scrooge was a tight-fisted hand at the grind-stone. A squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous, old sinner. Hard and sharp as flint, from which no steel had ever struck out generous fire; secret, and self-contained, and solitary as an oyster.
The cold within him froze his old features, nipped his pointed nose, shriveled his cheek, stiffened his gait; made his eyes red, his thin lips blue and spoke out shrewdly in his grating voice. A frosty rime was on his head, and on his eyebrows, and his wiry chin. He carried his own low temperature always about with him; he iced his office in the dog days; and didn’t thaw it one degree at Christmas.
“Bah! Humbug!” Ebnezer Scrooge’s dismissal of Christmas cheer is one of literature’s most recognized phrases. Scrooge’s cold and hardened heart serves as the battleground for Dickens’ powerful tale of repentance. When Scrooge emerges from his Christmas Eve visits by three ghosts — Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Yet to Come — as a changed man, readers and listeners alike cannot help but be moved by his miraculous conversion.
This compelling presentation of a timeless classic provides perfect family listening, both in the living room and in the car. Start a new tradition this year by inviting Ebenezer Scrooge to be a part of your Christmas celebration.
