Chicago Bulls
legend Scottie Pippen set a new record last week at a production of "A Christmas Carol" in the Windy City -- playing the first ever 6'8" 19th-century London townsman in the play -- and it was all for a good cause.

The director of "A Christmas Carol" at Chicago's Goodman Theatre tells TMZ, they created the role just for Pippen -- "He is a business man in the town and he becomes a part of the crowd scenes where we celebrate Christmas morning."

As you can see, Pippen blends right in.

The NBA icon made the special guest appearance as part of the Make-A-Wish program -- taking the stage with a 7-year-old cancer patient who wants to be an actress.
