“A Christmas Carol”

One-hour production featured at Beef & Boards Dec. 7-18

RUSHVILLE — INDIANAPOLIS – 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 story, A Christmas Carol. Enhanced with music, the timeless tale is live on stage from Dec. 7-18.

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 through 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 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), Noah Winston (Christmas Present) and Nathanael Welch (Christmas Yet To Come). Darrin Murrell plays Bob Cratchit with Bobbi Bates as Mrs. Cratchit. Playing their children are Walker Lasbury as Tiny Tim, Brielle Boynton as Belinda Cratchit, Nolan Oakes as Peter Cratchit and Anna Lasbury as Martha Cratchit. Collin Poynter plays the storyteller. Jacob Marley is played by Eddie Curry, while Theresa Koleszar, Carrie S. Neal and Josh Stark round out the cast.

The show is directed by Elizabeth Stark. Ron Morgan is the choreographer and music is arranged by Michael Hoagland. Jill Kelly is the costumer.
