The MTM Players Bring The Comedy Sequel THE TRIAL OF EBENEZER SCROOGE To The Kelsey Theatre Stage

It's the Trial of the Century! A year after his miraculous transformation, Ebenezer Scrooge appears to have reverted to his old ways when The MTM Players present the sequel comedy "The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge" at Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre.

Dates and show times for live performances of The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge are Fri. Dec 9, 2022 at 7pm, Sat. Dec 10 at 2pm & 7pm and Sun. Dec. 11 at 2pm & 7pm.

Set on Christmas Eve, 1844 - just one year after his reclamation - amidst plenty of mayhem and laughter Scrooge indignantly files suit against Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. The charges: breaking and entering, kidnapping, attempted murder, and the intentional infliction of emotional distress. With Scrooge representing himself (to save a pound), and London's charismatically clever barrister, Solomon Rothschild representing the ghosts, what will become of the spirit of Christmas? The classic Dickens' characters return to take the witness stand in Mark Brown's courtroom farce.

The cast features Michael Gilbert of Plainsboro, NJ as Ebenezer Scrooge; Chris Arena of Ewing, NJ as barrister Solomon Rothschild; Tom Bessellieu of Lawrenceville, NJ as Judge Stanchfield R. Pearson; Sean Robbins of Lawrenceville, NJ as Mr. Connelly, the Bailiff; Laura Dalston of East Brunswick, NJ holding quadruple duties as Mrs. Cratchit, Sara Wainwright, Mrs. Dilbert and The Translator; Angela Robb of Philadelphia, PA holding triple duties as Christmas Past, Fan and Belle; Marc Suznovich of Hamilton, NJ holding double duties as Bob Cratchit and Jacob Marley, and Pat Rounds of Hamilton, NJ holding double duties as Fred and the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come.

The show was penned by playwright Mark Brown originally from Pennington, NJ. He is an award-winning writer and actor. His plays include Around the World in 80 Days; China, The Whole Enchilada; Poe: Deep Into That Darkness Peering, and The Little Prince. As an actor, he has appeared on stage, screen and TV and worked with such people as Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Dick Van Dyke, Jeff Goldblum, and the Rally Monkey. He lives in Los Angeles, CA with his wife, daughter, and dog, and dreams of living in a chateau in France.

The show is directed by Rob Michael Lasky and produced by Rob Michael Lasky and Deb Lasky. Other members of the production team are Set Builders Dale Jones and Michael Gilbert, Lighting Designer M. Kitty Getlik, Sound Engineer Allison Russell, Costume Designer Rittzy Productions, and Stage Manager Rachel Jenkins.
