From a press release:

 Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol opens at NC Stage

Ensemble Theatre Company, in conjunction with North Carolina Stage Company, is proud to present Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol! The show is playing exclusively at NC Stage in downtown Asheville, from December 17th- December 28th.

Under the direction of Andrew Hampton Livingston and starring Michael MacCauley, this one man, tour-de-force performance is not to be missed.

“Scrooge? I have to redeem old Scrooge? The one man I knew who was worse than I was? Impossible!” So begins the journey of Jacob Marley’s heroic behind-the-scenes efforts to save old Scrooge’s soul—and in the process, save his own. Aided by Bogle, a mischievous little sprite with an agenda of his own, their hilarious journey takes them from the depths of the underworld to the stars above! This irreverent, funny, and ultimately, deeply moving story retells Dickens’ classic with warmth and infectious zest. This thrilling performance is sure to become a holiday classic for generations to come, and has been performed to rave reviews and standing ovations in theatres across the country!

During the entire run of the show, the Children First holiday drive will be in the lobby. NC Stage is partnering with Children First to collect items for “Bedtime in a Bag” which include toiletry items, pajamas, and children’s stories! December 27th, 2013 is a special holiday benefit day with a portion of ticket sales from the 2:00 PM Matinee being donated to benefit Children First.
