Reunite with the characters you love from Charles Dickens and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, now brought together in a story of intrigue and suspense, with a helping of holiday cheer.

When a grown-up Tiny Tim asks Sherlock Holmes to investigate the peculiar death of Ebenezer Scrooge, the Great Detective must use his tools of deduction to get to the bottom of the crime. But it is a dark and treacherous Christmas Eve, and once again the holiday is haunted by the spirits of the past, present, and future.

  • From the Playwright: This is a loose and playful mashup, an adaptation of the works of two very traditional authors. The actors are inhabiting the “idea” of the iconic characters, and can be cast in any number of ways. The actors are, after all, only spirits—which, as the play states, are around us all the time, guiding our way.


The World’s Foremost Consulting Detective, in decline.

Formerly a miser, one Christmas, Scrooge transformed into as good a man as the good old city ever knew. (Also is noted as A Ghostly Voice)


  • Dr. Timothy Cratchit – Tiny Tim, all grown up. Now, a doctor at St. Bernard’s Hospital for Children. He speaks with a more refined accent than his sister.
  • Mr. Topper – The manager of the Cosmopolitan Hotel. A bit older, a bit pompous. Easily irritated. Supposedly a friend of Fred, Scrooge’s nephew.
  • Ralph Fezziwig – A nervous, wiry young man. The black sheep of a proud family. Engaged to Fannie.
  • Constable Bradstreet – A seemingly upstanding member of Scotland Yard.


  • Emma Wiggins – A good-spirited and brave 13 year old, she is a former Baker Street Irregular.
  • Fan Gardner – Scrooge’s granddaughter. A refined young woman, she works backstage at the theatre in the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Engaged to Ralph Fezziwig.
  • Inspector Lestrade – Blustery, easily confounded member of Scotland Yard. He has grudging respect for Holmes.
  • Mrs. Windigate – A Scottish tavern keeper and member of the Goose Club. Giggly, a whirlwind.


  • Dr. Watson – Sherlock Holmes’ best and most loyal friend. The Boswell to Holmes’ Johnson.
  • Mrs. Dilber – Mr. Scrooge’s housekeeper of over 30 years. An emotional creature with a connection to the spiritual realm.
  • Henry Burke – An Irish candle maker, an old friend of Mr. Scrooge.
  • Old Joe Brackenridge – The owner of “Old Joe’s” in Covent Garden. Gruff, a born salesman.


  • Caroler – A cheerful person in the street
  • Woman In Restaurant – A London lady
  • The Countess of Morcar – American. An old love of Holmes’ who also goes by another name, Irene Adler.
  • Martha Cratchit – Tough and a bit lower class than her brother. She is as smart and observant as any detective she might happen to meet.
  • Mary Morstan – Watson’s elegant and brave wife.
  • Abigail Fezziwig – Runs a business fattening geese for market. She is no nonsense and direct – a proud member of the hardworking Fezziwig family.



Set in a 1930s European perfumery, we meet shop clerks, Amalia and Georg, who, more often than not, don’t see eye to eye. After both respond to a “lonely hearts advertisement” in the newspaper, they now live for the love letters that they exchange, but the identity of their admirers remains unknown. Join Amalia and Georg to discover the identity of their true loves…and of all the twists and turns along the way!

The story of Merrily We Roll Along is told in reverse which poses special challenges to the actors. We meet the characters as they approach middle age and must face the failures, the successes, and most of all the choices that have shaped their lives. As the play progresses, we watch their younger and younger selves making those choices and experiencing those failures and successes. We see them at their worst and at their best.  At the end, we meet them back at the beginning—young, idealistic and full of dreams, especially the three friends at the center of the story. Was their journey inevitable or was there a moment when it all might have changed direction and reached a different destination?

Franklin Shepard (spans 40’s to 20’s)
Charismatic, ambitious and supremely talented – Franklin is the man who got it all, but at a very steep cost, and is now the center of a universe that is falling to pieces around him. His vulnerability to temptation is liable to lead him astray, even amidst his triumphant successes. Ability to play the piano is a plus.

Charley Kringas (spans 40’s to 20’s)
Best friend, writing partner, a major talent in his own right, but also a man with both feet on the ground.  Charley believes in the work but is able to balance work and life.  In fact, Charley can handle anything but betrayal, and he does what he has to do to keep on doing the work his way.

Mary Flynn (spans 40’s to 20’s)
The third corner of the triangle of friends, Mary is a writer – and a good one – who has the good fortune to write a bestseller and the misfortune to be unable to follow it up.  Eventually, her career in journalism leads her to become that most despised of creatures – a theatre critic.  It is also her misfortune, from day one, to be hopelessly in love with Frank.  Over the years, she tries valiantly to hold the three friends together, but in the end, she drinks too much and tells the truth too much.

Gussie Carnegie (spans mid to late 40’s to mid to late 20’s)
Glamorous, jaded and ever so toxic, Gussie starts out as a great star beginning to face the advance of middle age. As the years fall away, we see that Gussie started out as the secretary who married the boss and then worked her way up to the successful composer, leaving ruin in her wake. Gussie gets what she goes after, and she doesn’t play fair; but she forgets that what goes around comes around.

Beth Spencer (spans from 40 to 20)
Franklin’s first wife. She never stops loving him, but when push comes to shove, Beth knows how to face her mistakes and fight for what she wants.  It starts out so well.  First she performs in the cabaret show that starts it all, then does the good wife thing and takes a day job to support them through the lean times.  Her loyalty is not rewarded.

Joe Josephson (spans from 50 something to 30 something)
Gussie’s discarded first husband, once a successful Broadway producer, now down on his luck and trying to hit up Gussie for a few bucks to get by.  Joe is instrumental in getting the boys to their first big hit and then inexorably pulls them away from the work they want to do, losing his wife – and his touch – in the process.

Frank, Jr.
Frank and Beth’s son who Frank loves and neglects. Approximately 10 — of small stature.
