Overview

CLOSED on December 22. Thank you to everyone who came!

JACOB MARLEY’S CHRISTMAS CAROL | Perfect for the whole family
By Tom Mula | Directed by Jon Tracy
Featuring Khris Lewin (A Steady Rain), Rami Margron (debut), Nicholas Pelczar (The Whipping Man) and Rebecca Pingree (debut)

Watch the trailer | EXTENDED! Eight shows added. Runs through December 22!

FOUR STARS “Cleverly and inventively staged, there is much to delight the spirit and stir the senses in this offbeat but large-hearted twist on a beloved classic.” – North Bay Bohemian

Perfect for the whole family, this festive ghost story opens as does Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, with Old Marley dead (“as a door-nail”). However, the focus never leaves his chained and burdened soul, remaining in the ethereal planes of the afterlife.

Given just 24 hours to redeem himself, Jacob Marley scrambles to reform his former partner in greed – that “squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner” Ebenezer Scrooge. This is going to be one long night… of spirited fun!

Recommended for ages 8 and up.
