Role Description

Beggar Woman: (Supporting) narrates the story of Scrooge and his fantastical one night journey, lives inside and outside the story, effortlessly weaving herself throughout the action, accompanied by a group of beggar children who she protects and loves. She is mystical, bold, passionate, thoughtful, encouraging, and loving. Despite her low standing in the world, she displays more compassion and strength than the affluent. There is power and dignity in her nature that commands respect from those around her; speaks with a Cockney dialect and must be able to sing a haunting lullaby, alto.
