Help Ebeneezer get that Christmas Goose!

We will again collect non-perishable foods for Stomp Out Hunger. Last year we collected a truck load and we hope to beat that amount. Also, starting this year, we will be collecting coats, gloves, and blankets for Blanket With Warmth. Any donation will recieve a coupon for free concessions at our Pocket Cafe during intermission. All donations will help families in need during the holiday season.


Synopsis:

From Playscripts, Inc.:

Faithful to Dickens' beautiful language, this flexible adaptation of the beloved Christmas classic tells the heartwarming story of miserly Ebeneezer Scrooge. Mr. Scrooge is always cold- hearted, and Christmas is no exception -- that is, until the ghost of his deceased business partner, Jacob Marley, comes to warn him about the consequences of living a life of greed and materialism. Over the next three nights, Scrooge is visited by three other spirits who try to convince him that his selfishness will be his downfall. Is this enough to make the selfish old miser change his ways?

"This version is true enough to the classic, real enough for today, and done with enough care and sensitivity to bring even the most dour of holiday sufferers into the right mood." - John Addyman, The Village News (Oxford, PA)
