Humbug – Play – Renton Civic Theatre

Elevator Thoughts (aka Tweet): Humbug play at Renton Civic Theatre. Modern take of A Christmas Carol where Scrooge is a cutthroat career-obsessed woman. Terminator was the ghost of #Christmas future! #theatre #CharlesDickens #xmas

Synopsis from the Theatre: As A Christmas Carol with a modern-day twist, Humbug follows the story of Eleanor Scrooge, a ruthlessly ambitious Wall Street executive who has an aversion to Christmas and an insatiable appetite for power. Locked in her office on a snowy Christmas Eve, Eleanor is determined to finish a corporate-takeover proposal until three “advisors” provide her with an eye-opening new appreciation for the holidays and the spirit of Christmas. An upbeat and moving adaptation of Dickens’ holiday classic, Humbug is one for the ages. With a contemporary flair, it is a tale the whole family will enjoy!

Other Rave(s) Not Mentioned in Elevator Thoughts

  • Favorite Line: When asked to help a man who collapsed, the ghost of Christmas present said “Back in my day we just bled em!”
