Christmas Past- Female 16 – 20's; medium range (Happiness Reprise)(**please note- puppeteers encouraged to audition)
The Ghost of Christmas Past shows Scrooge his youth and what really happened to his happiness. By showing Scrooge his past, the ghost makes him realize that he has changed drastically from who he was when he was young and that his interests have turned from people to money.
Ghost of Christmas Present- Male 30's - 50's; low baritone (I Like Life duet with Scrooge)
The Ghost of Christmas Present is a friendly, generous giant with the energy of a child but the knowledge of an adult. Scrooge bonds the most with this Ghost because he shows him how happy life can be.
Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come- 30's - 50's (non-speaking; non-singing) (**please note-puppeteers encouraged to audition)

Generous and happy, like her husband.

Young Adult Ebenezer- 18 - 25; tenor (Happiness; You - You)

Scrooge’s nephew, much like Bob Cratchit, maintains a child-like enjoyment of life and family. Harry maintains a generous spirit toward his miserly uncle, extending an annual invitation to Christmas dinner no matter how many times Scrooge declines it.
