Also on stage in the Marquette area is a unique production of the Holiday Classic, “A Christmas Carol”.  This production is being mounted by the Vertigo Theater Company at the Peter White Public Library in Marquette and tells the familiar story of Scrooge, but in a slightly unorthodox way.

Jeff Spencer and Dave Hansen, cast members, joined Walt Lindala this week to explain how the show is different from some adaptations and is a sparse production with only a handful of actors.
