Just in time for Christmas, Gulfshore Playhouse presents Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol takes the stage at the Norris Center in Cambier Park on December 12-20. The one-man show puts a twist on a holiday favorite, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
In Dickens’ classic novella A Christmas Carol, Jacob Marley appears only as a ghost shackled in chains, warning poor old Ebenezer Scrooge that his wayward ways have him on a path for an eternity of unrest. In Tom Mula’s comedy Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol, we see the behind-the-scenes machinations of Marley as he tries to save Scrooge’s soul from a similar fate. The play, immersed in fairytale, Dickens’ British sensibility, and a dash of contemporary wit, is a great addition to holiday festivities.
- Cody Nickell will play all 18 roles in Gulfshore’s production of Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol, Kristen Coury will direct.
- Preview Performances are scheduled for December 10 and 11, both at 8 p.m., with tickets costing $30. Opening night, December 12 at 7:30 p.m., tickets cost $50 and include post-performance cocktails with the stars. Showtimes for the December 13-20 production are Tuesday through Saturday, 8 p.m.; Sunday, 3 p.m – tickets start at $45. (No shows are scheduled December 14 and 21).
