An all new musical adventure is coming to Union in spring 2016: “Captain Scrooge and the Curse of the Red-nosed Reindeer” will premiere in Woods Auditorium. 

Written by Mike Mennard and directed by our new theater professor Brett Hadley, this musical adventure takes the Christmas classic, “A Christmas Carol” and gives it new life. Everyone is a pirate, including the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.

The twist it that it follows Bob Cratchit being hunted down by the ghosts because he’s too nice to be a pirate. Another quirk is that no women are allowed on the ships, though the crew is made up almost entirely of women.

Mennard and Hadley are excited to be working together to bring this new production to Union College. They are hopeful it will help kick off a new era for the theater program here, with Hadley captaining his new crew into a successful, fun night.

Be sure to look out for tickets to go on sale in the spring! 

The performances will take place in Woods Auditorium on the campus of Union College. Ticket prices will be $10 for regular admission and $7 for students and senior citizens. 

The production dates are coming soon!
