Bah humbug - the rest of the story

'Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol' is humorous, touching and revealing
by: Kelly Lazenby Scrooge, played by Curt Hanson, scolds Bob Cratchit, played by Scott Caster, in the Nutz-n-Boltz production of “Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol.” Watching the duo are Marley, played by Justin Lazenby, and the Bogle (ghost), portrayed by Megan Murphy Ruckman.

All eyes are on Boring this weekend as the Nutz-n-Boltz Theater presents the final performances of 'Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol' by Tom Mula.

The cast includes four actors who play 16 separate characters, telling a story of how one person (Jacob Marley) tries to save the soul of a hard-hearted man (Scrooge) and in the process saves his own.

This production is a twist on the classic Dickens holiday tale, but told from a totally different perspective.

The two-hour production, in two acts, is appropriate for the entire family, said Director Kelly Lazenby of Gresham.

The cast includes Curt Hanson of Happy Valley, Scott Caster from Boring, Justin Lazenby, who lives in Gresham, and Megan Murphy Ruckman of Portland.

Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday, Dec. 16-18, with a 3 p.m. matinee Saturday.

Information and tickets are available at or at the door. Prices are $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors. Children younger than 6 are free.

The theater is in the Boring-Damascus Grange Hall near Highway 212 in downtown Boring.
