You think you know the classic Dickens A Christmas Carol. But what if the story was set in Southeast Ohio in 1907 and old Eb Scrooge owned the local coal mine? What if Bob Cratchit helped organize the mine workers, and Fezziwig’s holiday party took place at Stuart’s Opera House with local musicians playing live onstage?
Brick Monkey Theater Ensemble, Southeast Ohio’s professional theater company, is proud to present An Appalachian Christmas Carol.
Spinning the traditional ghost story and tale of redemption, An Appalachian Christmas Carol honors Southeast Ohio’s rich coal mining and labor union heritage, while simultaneously celebrating the spirit of the season. This is a joyful story of redemption, rooted in rural storytelling and intertwined with regional traditional music.
So be sure to make An Appalachian Christmas Carol part of your holiday family tradition on the Historic Public Square in Nelsonville, Ohio.
