Scrooge has no honor, nor any courage. Can three ghosts help him to become the true warrior he ought to be in time to save Tiny Tim from a horrible fate? A Klingon Christmas Carol adapts Dickens' classic tale of ghosts and redemption to reflect the Warrior Code of Honor and is performed in the Original Klingon with English supertitles, and with narrative analysis from the Vulcan Institute of Cultural Anthropology,
This year's production is being helmed by new director Eric Van Tassell, who brings fresh eyes to this complex work. And along with a new leader at the helm, the production also has eleven new cast members learning Klingon and stepping into these challenging roles. Several favorites from the past remain though, such as Kevin Alves reprising his role of SQuja’ (Scrooge), and veterans Philip Zimmermann, Christina Romano, and Clark Bender.
