Witness 'The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge'


An accusatory Ebenezer Scrooge, standing on the scales of justice, gesturing at Dickens' Christmas Ghosts

A year ago Old World Wisconsin entertained audiences with "Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol," a variation on the Dickens classic in which both Ebenezer Scrooge and his deceased business partner Jacob Marley undergo emotional transformations after the Ghosts of Christmas open their hearts. This year, in a series of evening dinner theater and matinee performances, Scrooge returns to Old World Wisconsin — but worse than ever. He has reverted to his miserly and mean-spirited ways, bringing suit against Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas for attempted murder, kidnapping, breaking and entering, trespassing, stalking, slander, theft, pain and suffering, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

A Themed Buffet Precedes the Play

After a themed buffet in the historic and fully decked out Clausing Barn, the play's characters lead guests in a walk to the historic Caldwell Farmers' Club Hall to witness the "Trial of the 19th Century." Full of comedy, drama, suspense and surprises, "The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge" by Mark Brown is a delightful new look at a classic holiday favorite. Tickets include a voucher for The Spirit of Christmas Past, held the first two weekends in December. For those who would like to make a weekend of the event, Old World Wisconsin has teamed up with Eagle Centre Bed & Breakfast to create a special bed-and-breakfast package that includes show tickets, tickets to The Spirit of Christmas Past, a $10 museum store voucher and an overnight stay.
