About the Drama

Adapted from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, A Ghost of Christmas Past is a festive ghost story and cautionary tale, featuring original lyrics and compositions and a resilient femme touch. Fan, Scrooge’s often forgotten younger sister, takes center stage as the feminine and ethereal guide to restore balance in the unbalanced world and heart of Ebenezer Scrooge. Fan illuminates the notion that our individual and prime responsibility as humans is to examine how our inner phantoms, our histories, our words, and our actions affect those around us.

Through this retelling, we are reminded to accept help and guidance when it is offered, even when it is not easy. To resist the belief that reveling in the downfall or the destruction of those around us makes us better off. To embrace the power in our vulnerability. And to consider our own contribution to the larger scope of humanity.
