In a year when their theatre has been dark since March 16th, original plans for their annual production of Scrooge, with its 100+ cast members and sold-out shows had logically been canceled given the COVID-19 risks and restrictions. Their many loyal patrons were heart-broken with this decision since Scrooge has been a big part of their annual holiday traditions for the last 38 years. BUT, through the power of hope, creativity, and ingenuity their brilliant team realized that a re-imagined version of Scrooge could be presented, safely, in what has become their unexpected outdoor, breathtaking theatre.

The Spring Lake Theatre Company will present all of your favorite songs in an abbreviated, one-hour production. The show is produced by Patricia Barry. Returning to direct is Reid Henderson, who has been directing the show for the past several years. Musical direction will once again be provided by Mark Megill, and Christine Baglivio will choreograph.

Many of your favorite actors from previous years are also returning to continue the cheer, including Derek Hulse as Scrooge, Doug Moore as Christmas Present, Steve Balgivio as Tom Jenkins. and Laurett Gannon as Mrs. Fezziwig.
