“It’s Christmas Eve 1850, and the melancholy Scrooge finds himself alone at home when he sees before him the ghost of Jacob Marley, his long-time friend, and business partner who died seven years earlier. Marley warns Scrooge that he will repent, even in death, for all the suffering he has caused others, and he has only one chance to escape his fate.” Relive this incredible holiday classic by Charles Dickens as the State Street Theater Co. brings it to life on our stage. Coming out of retirement to direct this show, Wendy Tuttle has assembled a crew that is destined to make this experience incredible for the performers and the patrons.
State Street Theater is issuing a call for auditions of children 8 and up and adults for the play to be produced Friday, December 2 through Sunday, December 4.
