POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) - The Patrons of the Arts Society of Three Rivers College will present their holiday-themed show “Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol” on Dec. 3, at 7 p.m. in the Tinnin Fine Arts Center.
“This is to ‘A Christmas Carol’ what ‘Wicked’ is to ‘The Wizard of Oz’,” said Dr. Wes Payne, Vice President for Learning at Three Rivers, who coordinates the Patrons shows. “This is a version of ‘A Christmas Carol’ from the viewpoint of Scrooge’s deceased business partner, Jacob Marley.”
“Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol” tells the behind-the-scenes story of Marley’s attempt to save Scrooge’s soul, as well as his own. The story takes the audience along with Marley’s ghost from the streets of London through the afterlife and beyond.
