The New Christmas Musical
THE CRICKET ON THE HEARTH
By Charles Dickens
Adapted by Pamela Winfrey Music by Richard Jennings
A warm and enticing two act musical.
Based on Dickens' personal favorite Christmas novella.
Set in Victorian England and focusing on the primary characters, John and Dot, remaining true to Dicken's vision.
Think long woolen scarves and noses roughened by the cold.
We see it as an alternative to "A Christmas Story".
Indeed, "Cricket" was produced much more than "Carol"
before the turn of the century.
We are now actively seeking partnerships
with established theatre companies.
How Dare You!
Listen To The Cricket (Finale)
LISTEN TO THE CRICKET WHO HAS MAGIC IN IT’S VEINS.
IT MAKES THE FIRE BRIGHTER,
WHEN RAIN BEATS UPON THE WINDOW PANE.
IT MAKES THE TRIGGER FINGER,
RELEASE ITS GRIP UPON THE GUN.
AND SILENCES THE RAGING WOLF,
WHO HOWLS WHILE ON THE RUN.
LISTEN TO THE CRICKET WHO SEES GOOD IN EVERY DAY.
WHO TAKES THE TIME TO SING A SONG,
WHILE SMELLING LIFE’S BOUQUET.
