National Trail Players present Ebenezer’s Christmas Carol

NEW PARIS – Is holiday stress leaving you in a “bah, humbug” mood? Get your Christmas spirit back with a good, old-fashioned classic.

“Ebenezer’s Christmas Carol” will be presented by the National Trail High School Players at 7 p.m., Dec. 15, and 2 p.m., Dec. 16. Tickets are $5 and will be available at the door. The play will be in the middle school cafeteria of the school at 6940 Oxford-Gettysburg Road, New Paris. The public is invited. Proceeds will benefit the school’s drama department.

This one-hour production is based on the Charles Dickens tale about a miserable mean miser who finds the true meaning of Christmas with the help of three ghosts. The story encompasses all elements of human drama: conflict, love, loss and fear -- plus a sprinkling of comedy.

Cast members are Jonathon Phillips, Connor Stonecash, Brett Kelly, Kate Dane, Tiffany Flory, Hunter Henning, Dylan Forster, Kayla Rush, C.J. Wing, Thomas Hill, Tessa Rhodus, Lucas Bailey, Brittany Horning, Haylee Moreland, Kaylee Simpson, Aaron Bottoms, Emma Toschlog, Codee Ramey, Corey Noble, Joshua Lee, J.P. Allen, Paige Phillips, Kirstyn Richards, Kourtney Smith, Alexis Watts and Stage Crew Becky and Chelsea Allen.

Lisa Derringer, NTHS library and computer teacher, is the director and driving force behind this enthusiastic group of young thespians. Her first National Trail production in 2006 was “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown,” which starred then NT senior Kyle Holster as the loveable Charlie Brown. Coincidentally, Holster – now a teacher at National Trail – is assisting Derringer in directing this holiday production.

“Ebenezer’s Christmas Carol” is the 11th NTHS Players production. In addition to “Charlie Brown, other shows included “Fools,” “Death of a Doornail,” “Li’l Abner,” “Oz,” “Pocahontas,” “Gone with the Breeze,” “Yearbook,” “Give My Regards to Broadway” and “Once Upon a Mattress.”
