At Walnut Hills, Junior High Theatre Students Retell a Familiar Holiday Story

WHHS_Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge promoCincinnati OH – Join us this holiday season at Walnut Hills High School for the trial of the century as the theatre department presents THE TRIAL OF EBENEZER SCROOGE by Marc Brown. The award-winning department is excited to share a new take on A Christmas Carol with the aftermath of that fateful night.

New characters and perspectives will make you laugh and question the truth of the story you’ve always known. One new character is the Translator of the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. Eighth grader Adeleigh Karoutchi who plays the translator says that her character “brings on an attitude that you don’t get to see in the original story.” The translator is just one of the few characters that bring comedy and a new story to the table in this production.

The show will run December 7th (7pm) and 8th (2pm & 7 pm). Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and children.

Show Synopsis:
By Marc Brown

The Trial of the Century! A year after his miraculous transformation, Ebenezer Scrooge is back to his old ways and is suing Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future for breaking and entering, kidnapping, slander, pain and suffering, attempted murder and the intentional infliction of emotional distress. The ghosts employ Solomon Rothschild, England’s most charismatic, savvy, and clever barrister. Scrooge, that old penny pincher, represents himself. One by one, Bob Cratchit, Scrooge’s nephew Fred, solicitor and philanthropist Sara Anne Wainwright, and the ghosts themselves take the witness stand to give their account of the night in question.
