COSHOCTON -- The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge, a comedy by Mark Brown, will be performed at the Triple Locks Theater in Coshocton.
Show dates are Dec. 11, 12, 18 and 19 with all shows starting at 8 p.m. The comedy can be enjoyed by call ages 12 and up. The comedy is produced by Patty Wherley and directed by Shane Pyle.
The story goes ... one year after his miraculous transformation, Ebenezer Scrooge is back to his old ways and is suing Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future on a host of charges, including kidnapping and attempted murder. The ghosts employ Solomon Rothschild, England's most charismatic and clever barrister. Scrooge, that old penny pincher, represents himself.
One by one, Bob Cratchit, Scrooge's nephew Fred Fitzpatrick, philanthropist Sara Anne Wainwright, and the spirits themselves take the witness stand to give their account of the night in question. But one of the spirits breaks down under heavy questioning and confesses something that puts the fate of all the ghosts in jeopardy.
Judge Stanchfield Pearson gives his verdict, setting the stage for a miraculous ending that you have to see to enjoy.
