🕐 1 min read

Jubilee Theatre presents Ekundayo Bandele’s If Scrooge Was a Brother Nov. 22-Dec. 22, 2019

It’s Christmas Eve and Eb Scroo is seeking to snuff out the season’s cheer by demanding all debts owed him be satisfied before nightfall. Facing imprisonment, a Christmas without presents and a feast, the residents are desperate.

In this urban spin of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, the ghosts and characters are icons of Black culture performing holiday songs with a twist.

If Scrooge Was a Brother premiered at the Hatiloo Theater in Memphis, Tennessee, in 2013.

Jubilee Theatre will present its own production starting on Nov. 22, the first holiday production under the leadership of Artistic Director D. Wambui Richardson.

If Scrooge Was a Brother will show Thursday nights through Saturday nights, with a Sunday matinee. The production will close Sunday, Dec. 22.

Bandele is current the Exec. Director of the Hatiloo Theater, which he founded. He was born in Buffalo, New York, and started writing books in the sixth grade. By the age of 27, Bandele had already written three stage plays.

Single tickets are priced at $28, $32, and $35. Students and group discounts are available.

All are available at the box office, by telephone (817) 338-4411, or online: www.JubileeTheatre.org
