From "Pee-Wee's Playhouse" in New York to "Scrooge" in Yorba Linda? Some might see that as a leap from the extraordinary to the prosaic, but not Jeff Raum. He sees the Yorba Linda Civic Light Opera's production of "Scrooge," which opens Tuesday, as an opportunity to tap into two sides of his creativity at once.
