Since the earliest days of Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble’s 40 year history, audiences have been delighted, charmed, and frightened by this timeless holiday classic, and they are thrilled to once again stage the ghostly trials and ultimate redemption of Ebenezer Scrooge.

A treat for the whole family, for those who join them every year, and those just starting the tradition. Long-time Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble’s patrons will be excited to see founding ensemble member Rand Whipple (kidney transplant donor) reprise his role as Scrooge almost 40 years later!

The Thursday evening December 14th performance will raise awareness about Organ Donation, with Rand Whipple sharing his kidney transplant journey, organ donation information, and the opportunity to register throughout the night.
