The Christmas Carol Farce (Featuring the Five-Minute Christmas Carol)

17f, 8m


Charles Dickens’s ghost arranges for a high school production of A Christmas Carol to be broadcast on TV. The cast is ecstatic, until they learn their performance must be cut to one hour. At the TV studio, they discover it must be cut to 40 minutes for commercials. Just before they go on-air, an overtime football game forces them to cut again. When all that’s left is 5 minutes, they perform an hilariously fast holiday classic.
