Scrooged and Marley(c) plus Holiday Vaudeville Review

November 29 – January 1

Scrooge & Marley

A world premiere musical melodrama, SCROOGED AND MARLEY(c) will be Martin City Melodrama’s newest holiday show!  Ebenezer Scrooge is beginning to have physical limitations in his old age at his counting house.  After Mr. Scrooge investigates the cost of physical therapy, or hiring some additional help besides Bob Cratchit,  Scrooge thinks the costs are way too high. Thinking it might be a cheaper way to go, Scrooge obtains a service dog (a senior rescue dog will be playing the role of the service dog).   It turns out this service dog is Marley, Scrooge’s long passed, greedy business partner, re-incarnated!

While keeping in tradition with this timeless Charles Dickens classic, Martin City Melodrama & Vaudeville Co. adds its wonderful, wacky twist to the rest of the story.  Ebenezer Scrooge and his service dog, Marley, meet up with some unusual spirits throughout the night before Christmas. These spirits turns out to be FAMOUS CAROLS, including Carol Brady and Carole King! Finally, Ebenezer Scrooge sees the evil of his ways and, with the help of Marley the service dog and the famous Carols, Scrooge is transformed for good.  He finds his holiday spirit and shouts from the roof-tops, “DOG bless us everyone!”

Following the melodrama is the Holiday Vaudeville with songs, dances, and comedy sketches in the theme of the holidays. This includes the theatre’s WORLD FAMOUS WATER GLASS SYMPHONY, plus, the debut of Martin City Melodrama’s Christmas Chickens!
