Help us reach our fundraising goal of $5,000!

Brick Monkey has created a new holiday family tradition in SE Ohio. Your $20 donation will support professional theater in our region. For instance, 700 school kids saw a FREE matinee last year. Your $20 donation will cover the cost of bringing one child to a show (ticket and bus). Donations also help us build/maintain props, sets, and costumes, pay for the fantastic live music (come early to the show and dance to live Appalachian music!) and help us cover the many costs associated with mounting a professional theater production. Your donation is tax deductible; our donation processor, Network For Good, provides you with all the tax documents you might need. You can donate a little or a lot, or even set up a monthly pledge like many of us do to keep our NPR radio stations on the air.

ABOUT THE SHOW: 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? …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. Join us in continuing to build a new holiday family tradition!

WHERE: Stuart’s Opera House in Nelsonville. General seating, so come early for the live music!
