Everyone can find the true meaning of Christmas in their heart. In Humbug High: A Contemporary Christmas Carol by Lindsay Price, it only takes a couple of ghosts and a dead lunch lady.
Eddie Scrooge is 17 years old. He hates his parents and his classmates. His only goal in life is to make money and keep his heart ice-cold. He carries his own low temperature always about him and doesn’t thaw one degree at Christmas.
He is on his way to becoming a miserly, miserable, tight-fisted hand to the grindstone, until one Christmas season he is taken on a journey by Madge, the lunch lady, and the ghosts of Christmases past, present and future. Scrooge is about to meet the errors of his ways face-to-face.

The kids enjoyed doing the show.
Great work, Salem High School!
