Tom Schimmerling heads the cast as Scrooge, with Cratchits including Andrew Perry (Mr.), Marianne Johansen (Mrs.) and Juliet Sullivan (Timmy Loo Hoo).

Eileen Tallmadge and Pat Hanson narrate while spooky visitors, played by River Tallmadge and Sue Fletcher, join Madyson Smith (Belle), Logan Hunter (nephew Fred), Jonathan Rude (Boy), and Angel Bryan (Maid) in the ensemble.

Scrooge may scoff at community collections, but the Jericho Arts Council and the Out of the Woodwork Players hope you'll come, enjoy and donate shelf stable food items or cash, to fill the Bainbridge and Sidney food pantries for the holidays.
