Mr Scrooge Dinner Theater

11.12.09 | Darcie Schwarz

The cranky old miser everyone loves is coming to the stage! Family Life will present the musical comedy, Mr. Scrooge—a musical retelling of Charles Dickens' classic tale, A Christmas Carol. Mr. Scrooge will “Bah-humbug” in three different locations: Scranton, PA; Mayville, NY; and Bath, NY.

Tickets for the Bath performances flew out the door, so we added a Saturday matinee to satisfy demand. (Hey, Scrooge is a popular guy despite his bad manners.)

Mr. Scrooge features a 17-person cast and will be performed “in the round” for a unique dinner theater experience. In the story, the embittered Ebenezer is given a chance for redemption by Jacob Marley, the ghost of his former business partner. Marley, a miser from the same mold as Scrooge, is suffering from eternal consequences and hopes to help Scrooge avoid his fate with the visitation of three spirits. The ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future, show Scrooge the error of his ways and transform his heart with new-found compassion and kindness.
