Estella The Life and Times of Little Miss Scrooge is a Dickensian Musical Extravaganza; a modern retelling of A Christmas Carol with additional characters and plot lines from Great Expectations, Little Dorrit, Bleak House and other great Dickens’ novels.
Estella Scrooge, a young Wall Street tycoon and direct descendent of Ebenezer is tested beyond her wildest dreams when fate forces her to visit Pickwick, Ohio on Christmas Eve. There she meets Pip Nickleby who runs the Harthouse Hotel, a refuge for the sick, dispossessed and homeless. Part love story, part ghost story, Little Miss Scrooge attests to Dickens’ passionate belief in social reform and the overwhelming power of human kindness and generosity.
