A DONATION is presented to Bill Smith, music director for Tri-Town Theatre's upcoming production of "Scrooge" (L) by Marty Peloso, representing United Way of Sidney Board of Directors(r.). The purpose of the gift is to enable Tri Town Theatre to continue producing on the Sidney High School stage.

SIDNEY - Acknowledging the recent generous donation received from the Sidney United Way, Tri-Town Theatre announces their upcoming musical "Scrooge" with note that they appreciate the gift even if miserly Mr. Scrooge might "bah humbug" the giving! One of many versions derived from Charles Dickens' most popular and beloved 1843 classic, "A Christmas Carol," the musical "Scrooge" tells the story of heartless money-lender, Ebenezer Scrooge, with singing and dancing throughout.

Ultimately reformed by successive visitations from his long-dead partner in greed, Marley,(Jack Deuel) the ghosts of Christmas Past (Jennifer Mazzarella), Present (David Hawkins) and Future (Steven Howes), Scrooge (Jack Doyle) sees the error of his ways in time to enjoy Christmas. "God bless us every one!" is the familiar cry of Tiny Tim (Emily Cooley), the son of

Scrooge's brow-beaten clerk, Bob Crachitt (Patrick Summers) and his wife (Theresa Sears). Faith Monaghan, Romany Snider and Hunter Sowersby play the other Crachitt children.

Scott and Susan Jerauld play Scrooge's nephew, Harry, and wife with other Londoners Craig LaForte, Rich Cooley, David and Gaby Pysnik, Dale Robinson, Eileen Himes, Marge Olson, Taylor Howes, John Hitt, Tim and Bill Sullivan.

Faces from the past are former employer Fezziwig (Rich Cuthbertson) and Mrs. (Jeanne Slawson) and the love of young Scrooge, (Steven Howes), Isabel (Rachel Lockhart.)

"Scrooge" plays on the Sidney High School stage Friday and Saturday, November 21-22 at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, November 23 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are available at the door, in downtown Sidney at Glad Tidings, in Unadilla at Village Variety and at the Bainbridge Pharmacy.
