Epping Community Theater

ECT is keeping warm this winter by staying as active as ever! This December we have a great holiday show and will be opening registration for our Winter/Spring theater classes (classes starting in January).

Be prepared December 6th - December 15th for the trial of the century!  Throughout New Hampshire, there are plenty of chances to see the classic tale “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens.  However, ECT offers you the chance to see what happens a year later in the life of Scrooge. Did the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future really inspire Scrooge  to  maintain  the  spirit  of  the  holidays throughout the whole year?  Is Scrooge truly a changed man? Come see “The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge” to find out!

In this incredibly funny, witty, and touching holiday tale we bring back all your favorite characters: Scrooge, his nephew Fred, the Cratchits, Tiny Tim, Ms. Dilbert, the charity collector, Belle, Fan, and of course Jacob Marley and the Christmas Ghosts.  Set in an 18th Century courthouse, Scrooge sets out to sue Marley and the ghosts for breaking and entering, kidnapping, slander, pain and suffering, attempted murder, and the intentional infliction of emotional distress.  Through various testimonies we get to re-experience some iconic Dickens lines as well as take a second look at the real reason Scrooge is visited that particular night.

Whether you have seen A Christmas Carol or are new to the Dickens’ tale you will truly be entertained by this fantastic story. While capturing the same heartfelt spirit Dickens intended, “The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge” will challenge you to look at that fateful Christmas Eve in a different light and rediscover the true spirit of Christmas!
