Ebenezer’s on his way here

Guess who’s coming to Elk River this holiday season? (And HE’s not happy about it.)

Welcome to Elk River, Minnesota, home of the Elks, a dozen lakes and one crotchety old miser named Ebenezer Scrooge.

Ebenezer Scrooge is the proprietor of Scrooge and Marley Property Management Ltd. in Elk River.

Scrooge is the proprietor of Scrooge & Marley Property Management Ltd. in downtown Elk River. When he’s not counting his properties or evicting delinquent renters, Scrooge scowls and rants at his good-hearted clerk, Bob Cratchit.

But on the best of all days of the year, Christmas Eve, Scrooge is given a chance to redeem his misspent life when he’s visited by three spirits. The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present (Jolly Old St. Nick) and Yet To Come take him on a midnight journey, in hopes of thawing his chilly heart with the warmth of human kindness — before it’s too late.

The Elk River Area Arts Alliance hosts this original stage production, adapted for Elk River by Minneapolis-based radio play troupe Deadbeats On The Air. “An Elk River Christmas Carol” is an homage to old-time radio and the joys of the yuletide season, with live music, live sound effects, humor, holiday magic and lots of Christmas carol singing.
