Scrooge in Rouge Dec 6 - Dec 22, 2019  
Ocean Beach Playhouse and Arts Center Scrooge in Rouge
 
The show must go on! So when 17 of a raggedy 20-member acting troupe in England fall victim to food poisoning the night before their performance of A Christmas Carol, it's up to the three remaining cast members to deliver a stellar show. From miserly old Scrooge to the innocent young Tiny Tim, the trio tackles nearly two dozen characters in this hilariously twisted take on the holiday classic, swapping genders and going from living to dead and back again quicker than you can say "Bah, humbug!" along the way. Bawdy humor and madcap quick-change fun abounds in Scrooge in Rouge at the Ocean Beach Playhouse and Arts Center in San Diego
