Winter Dinner Theater: 'Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol'
Friday, December 09, 2011 - Saturday, December 10, 2011 Friday 7 pm, Saturday 1 pm (Both shows are sold out)
"Scrooge? I have to redeem old Scrooge? The one man I knew who was worse than I was? Impossible!"
So begins the real story behind Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" — the story of Jacob Marley's heroic behind-the-scenes efforts to save old Scrooge's soul — and, in the process, save his own. Aided by a Bogle, a malicious little hell-sprite with an agenda of his own, their hilarious journey takes them from the Jaws of Death to the Mouth of Hell — and beyond! Heartwarming, funny, sometimes scary and ultimately deeply moving, the play is performed in an intimate storytelling style that sets this production apart — and will conjure memories of crackling fires, hot chocolate and snowy Christmases long ago. This award-winning play has been performed to rave reviews and standing ovations in theaters across the country.
Before the performance, enjoy a signature-themed holiday meal, then take a lamplit walk to the historic Caldwell Farmers' Club Hall to settle in for this out-of-the-ordinary entertainment. Arrive 10-15 minutes early so that you're comfortably seated before dinner service begins. Cash bar open during dinner; snacks and refreshments available for purchase during the performance's intermission. Reservations required. For each dinner theater ticket purchased, the ticket bearer will receive a ticket for admission to The Spirit of Christmas Past on December 10–11.
"Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol" is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service Inc., New York. The author is Tom Mula.
Adults $60, children 17 and under $50. Reservations required. All new, more comfortable seating for the 2011 season.
