In the Community: See “A Christmas Carol” at the Phelps Mansion Museum!

Christmas treeFor six evenings in December (12 performances total) the Phelps Mansion Museum transforms into the homes and offices of Ebenezer Scrooge and Bob Cratchit for a classic evening of drama and redemption.

As a fundraiser, the Phelps Mansion Museum and Studio 271 Productions present an interactive production of Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol. This is a walking tour of the stately home of Sherman Phelps at 191 Court Street in Binghamton.

The audience is swept back in time to that fateful Christmas Eve of 1843 where Ebenezer Scrooge learns the ‘true meaning of Christmas.’ Audience members move from room to room with the performers as they observe the familiar scenes of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, Christmas Future, and Mr. Fezziwig’s Christmas party. At the end of the performance, all shall receive a formal invitation to Fred’s (Scrooge’s nephew) Christmas celebration where dessert and punch is provided.

There are two shows each night at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.: Friday and Saturday December 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16.

Tickets are limited to a total of 30 audience members per performance!

Admission is $30 per person or $50 for couples. Places are limited and reservations are essential!

Please call (607) 722-4873 or email  info@phelpsmansion.org for more information.

The cast includes Chris Nickerson as Ebenezer Scrooge, Craig Hawkins as Jacob Marley, Joe Bardales as Bob Cratchit, and Judy McMahon, Jennifer Donlin, and Nick DeLucia as the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future and features Michael Rundell as Tiny Tim.
