Director Jim Johnson wanted to be sure that Susquehanna Stage Company (SSC) performed something unique for its first major children’s production in the Eater Theater at Marietta Center for the Arts, 133 W. Market St., Marietta. Instead of performing a show that was pegged outright for youths, he opted for an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” SSC board member Asher Johnson, who is also Jim’s son and regularly appears in SSC productions, wrote the original adaptation, “A Children’s Christmas Carol,” which is filled with Christmas carols and songs. “It’s pretty true to the Charles Dickens version and has the same characters, but we wanted something that was more tailored for younger kids,” commented Asher. A beloved holiday favorite, the tale follows embittered Ebenezer Scrooge, played by Brayton Alkinburgh, as he clings to his miserly ways and declares the joys of Christmas to be “Bah! Humbug!” Scrooge’s disheartened mentality is shaken up through the course of several events, including encounters with the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future - portrayed by Emma Witman, Anastasia Hess, and Teresa Moore, respectively. Zac Snyder will play Bob Cratchit, Scrooge’s employee. “I get to be the happiness of the show and spread cheer with my family,” said Zac, who lives in Columbia and attends Lancaster Catholic High School. This will be his fifth performance with SSC. Mrs. Cratchit will be portrayed by Julia Bono, who is making her SSC debut. “I love this show, and I was really interested

in playing a character who is a lot older than me and who has kids,” shared Julia, a Lampeter resident and student at Lancaster Country Day School. “I think it’s really special that it’s a cast of all kids. We all get along really well, and we’re having a lot of fun with this show,” added Julia. The cast includes children ages 5 to 18 from throughout Lancaster and York counties. Additional cast members include Grayson Marz as Isabella, Teddy Best as Tiny Tim, Brennen Eshleman as Jacob Marley, Aiden Stehman as Mr. Fezziwig and The Visitor, Alexa Knapp as Mrs. Fezziwig, Liam Nornhold as Fred, and Claire Hanlon as Fred’s Wife. In the ensemble are Charis Alkinburgh, Lydia Alkinburgh, Emma Antonacci, Hayden Bires, Stella Heysek Breese, Aria Cobb, Addison DeLuca, Sydney Droege, Charlotte Evans, Aidan Fahnestock, Zoe Fahnestock, Kinsey Fries, Jane Haas, Portia Keddie, Molly Kitchen, Seth Manning, Elise Maurer, Lauren McGough, Isaac Moore, Madison Mutterspaugh, Blake Neff, Molly Neill, Francyne Nichols, Saige Schmitt, Derian Shubert, Audrey Shultz, Alivia Wahba, and Sylvie Willing. Performances of “A Children’s Christmas Carol” are scheduled for Fridays to

Susquehanna Stage Company will perform “A Children’s Christmas Carol” at the Marietta Center for the Arts on the weekends of Dec. 6 to 8 and Dec. 13 to 15. Sundays, Dec. 6 to 8 and Dec. 13 to 15, at the Marietta Center for the Arts. Friday and Saturday shows will begin at 7:30 p.m., with Sunday shows at 2 p.m. Tickets may be purchased in advance at or by calling 717-426-1277. “We love having Christmas program-

ming for families that like to have that theater experience tradition,” noted Jim. “We have such a talented group of kids. Now that we have this space (at Marietta Center for the Arts), we hope to offer even more for children every year. ‘A Children’s Christmas Carol’ is a reflection of our education department.”
