Scrooge embarks on a very special Christmas mission when University of Detroit Mercy Theatre Company presents Ebenezer. Written by Joseph Zettelmaier and directed by Andrew Papa, performances are through Sunday, Dec. 8 at the Marlene Boll Theatre in Detroit.
From UDMTC: It has been 15 years since the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future intervened in Ebenezer Scrooge’s life. Now renowned for his philanthropy, generous spirit and selflessness, his heart yearns to continue spreading joy even as those same Christmas spirits beckon at him. Joined by two companions – Miss Poole and Tim Cratchit – the hour of midnight approaches as Scrooge sets in motion his final charitable deed. “Ebenezer,” by Detroit-based playwright Joseph Zettelmaier, will surely remind you the spirit of Christmas is a time of wonder you can bring to life every day!
- Dec. 6 | Anatomy of a Playwright: Join Detroit-based playwright, Joseph Zettelmaier, as he shares his experience and inspiration for writing “Ebenezer.”
- Dec. 7 | Community Night: Tickets are only $15.
- Dec. 8 | Retirement Celebration: Raise a glass to Arthur Beer! Celebrate with family, friends, students, alumni, faculty and staff commemorating a life in theatre. RSVP and event information click here!
