The fright before Christmas - a short blackly comic playlet

The fright before Christmas is a short blackly comical tale of three greedy, selfish children who learn their life lesson under the guidance of the ghost of reformed Ebenezer Scrooge. Written in mostly rhyming couplets in the style of 'Twas the night before Christmas, it can be padded out with a dance section if needs be. Ideal for filming as a virtual playlet.
