Seasonal favorite returns to Beef & Boards

In time for the holidays and on select dates only, Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre presents its special one-hour production of the classic Charles Dickens tale “A Christmas Carol.”

The timeless tale is enhanced with music, live on stage from Dec. 6 through 20.

Ebenezer Scrooge is a miserly businessman whose bitterness has increased with age. He cares little for the needs of his fellow man, preferring to keep money in his pocket rather than coal on the fire. His employee, Bob Cratchit, faithfully endures the ongoing chill from both his workplace and his boss. Faithfully, he keeps Scrooge in his prayers even though his own family is struggling to survive on the meager salary he earns. The health of Cratchit’s young son, Tiny Tim, is as poor as the family is financially, but Scrooge’s heart is unmoved and his coffers remain unopened.

Scrooge’s inhumanity becomes so intense that it stirs the spirit of his late business partner, Jacob Marley, who appears to him on Christmas Eve. Marley tells Scrooge he will be visited by three more spirits, and advises him to heed the messages they bring. The ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come then appear to Scrooge in succession — reminding him of what was, pointing out what is, and showing him what will be should he continue on his present path. Not only will his life be quickly forgotten if he maintains his miserly ways, but those around him face hardships that he could have easily prevented.

Jeff Stockberger stars as Ebenezer Scrooge in this story of forgiveness and second chances. Haunting him as the spirits are Erin Cohenour (Ghost of Christmas Past), Craig Underwood (Christmas Present), and Steve Greist (Christmas Yet To Come). Darrin Murrell plays Bob Cratchit with Carrie S. Neal as Mrs. Cratchit. Playing their children are Sage Barber Murrell as Tiny Tim, Sofia Murrell as Belinda Cratchit, Isaac Herzog as Peter Cratchit, and Kennedy Martin as Martha Cratchit. Collin Poynter plays the storyteller. Jacob Marley is played by Eddie Curry, while Theresa Koleszar, Kellie Cullinan, and Michael Davis round out the cast.
