Scrooge goes to trial at Troy Civic Theatre


TROY — What better way to start the celebration of the holidays than with live theatre? The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge by Mark Brown opens Dec. 2 at Troy Civic Theatre, and runs for two weekends.

A new take on a holiday classic, this show is sure to delight audiences of all ages. A year after the classic Charles Dickens tale, Ebenezer Scrooge has decided to sue the Ghosts of Christmas and Jacob Marley for breaking and entering, kidnapping, slander, pain and suffering, attempted murder and the intentional infliction of emotional distress. What can go wrong as people’s favorite barrister Solomon Rothschild comes to their defense against prosecutor Scrooge, who is representing himself, during the trial of the century?
