December 12-21 “Being Ebenezer”

Presented by GROUNDWORKS

Written by MJ Stephens

Tickets $12, $10 for students and seniors online at www.groundworkstheatre.com


Treat yourself to the original and heartwarming story of James & Sophia Beckwell. They had it all; an epic love story, a beautiful daughter, and the lights of Broadway.  But twenty-eight years ago fate stole in and took Sophia’s life. Unable to recover, James let his daughter, Laura slip away from him and at seventeen she left for the Coast and never looked back.

Now she’s returned to New York, and her kids have been cast in “A Christmas Carol.” All is well until she sees a draft of the program and reads ‘James Beckwell as Ebenezer.’  She told her kids her parents were dead. Can she keep her secret or like Dickens’ story, will the Ghost of Christmas reveal all?  This is the story of one family’s Christmas Carol, unlike any other that you’ve ever heard.  Don’t miss it.

Presented by GROUNDWORKS

Written by Keith Trawick

All Candy and Rhonda want to do is get the chance to sing in front of people.  For now the closest they can get to a stage is while they’re serving dinner to their customers at the Starlite Supper Club, right next door to the Starlite Motel – their current home.  But could their luck be changing?  They’ve finally been given a chance to sing one number, in between serving their customers and who knows who might be in the audience?  Maybe a big-time music producer, or manager, maybe their lives could change forever.
