Optional audition monologue: “Scrooge was hard and sharp as flint, from which no steel had ever struck out generous fire. Secret and self-contained and solitary as an oyster. The cold within him froze his old features, nipped his pointed nose, shriveled his cheek, stiffened his gait; made his eyes red and his thin lips blue. Nobody ever stopped him in the street to say: "My dear Scrooge, how are you? When will you come to see me?" No beggars implored him. No children asked him what it was o'clock. But what did Scrooge care? It was the very thing he liked.”
