SYNOPSIS: The Set up: Three Wise Women, badly in need of a job, accept to put on a Production of A Christmas Carol in a far off city. What Happens: They arrive in an empty theater on the afternoon of what should be opening night without resources, knowing no one and, as it turns out never having read the story! People show up. There is a crash-landed lower level angel, a wheelchair bound actor/singer named Screamin’ Stephen J.Hawking, his nurse, a tap dancer and a theater critic… all of them found to be perfect for the night’s performance and to sing the classic Overtone songs ‘Why do I have to do everything?’ and ‘What’s in a dress?’ Not to mention Mr. Hawking’s rendition of ‘I’m a Star, I’m an Old Star, and the Never to be forgotten anthemic ‘It’s a pretty good life.
All Roles are COMEDIC. It’s a Pretty Good Life (A wildly original holiday play with fabulous songs)
SCREAMIN’ STEPHEN J HAWKINS/SCROOGE MAN: Requires singing. Two very different parts from different eras – Now and also the 19th Century or something like it.
ANGEL MAN: Largely a physical, non-speaking role. 1 monologue/ 1 song.
TAP DANCER/TINY TIM MAN: Requires Singing and Tap Dancing. Sympathetic and helpful Must Tap Dance – REALLY!
CRITIC/CRATCHET/ MARLEY MAN: Three roles from two eras present and 19th century or something like it.
STAGE MANAGER/NURSE/ MRS. CRATCHIT: WOMAN: Three very different roles: A suspicious Stage Manager, A sexy Nurse (to Screamin’ Stephens) And the very domestic 19th Century Mrs. Cratchit
