Most people are familiar with Charles Dickens’ famous novel A Christmas Carol, with its main character Ebenezer Scrooge, who transforms from a stingy miser to a generous and cheerful soul over the course of three midnight visits from the Spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. For many people from historic downtown Wilmington homes, reading the story or watching a movie version is a venerable holiday tradition.

Theatre-Goers from Historic Downtown Wilmington Homes Will Follow the Transformation of Jacob Marley

This production, instead of focusing on the transformation of Scrooge, focuses on his dead partner, Jacob Marley, whose Christmas Eve visit to Scrooge sets in motion the events of the story. Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol gives us Jacob’s backstory, complete with his very own demonic tormentor. It also shows us why Jacob agreed to visit Scrooge, as well as what happened to him after Scrooge was redeemed.

Make plans to take in the show on historic downtown Wilmington real estate. The new take on an old story will make you laugh, have you on the edge of your seat, and warm your heart, while you watch Jacob Marley discover his own heart. Performances take place in the old Friendly’s Department Store, located at 613 Castle Street, in the Newcastle Arts and Antiques District.
