In the mid-1990s, I penned a musical rendition of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" containing 16 original songs. The lead is an eleven-year-old girl, Young Jenny Scrooge. It was produced on the West Coast with 40 kids to a standing-room-only audience. Now Young Jenny Scrooge is again attracting attention. Keep your fingers crossed. It would be great to see this show being done again.
