Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he's forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his Past, Present, & Future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful "Happy Christmas" before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him.

The acclaimed Paper Mill Playhouse production of Children Of Eden (which was compared favorably in the press to The Lion King) used several children in the chorus, who played many of the animals by means of puppetry, costumes and masks, to great effect.
