A Dickens of a Christmas in Ashtabula County


Would you and your family like to share a holiday dinner with Ebenezer Scrooge?  You can do it this holiday season in Geneva-on-the-lake at the Christmas Carol Dinner Theater.

A local thespian group, Noble Entertainment, with a cast of twelve, is presenting this unusual take on Dickens immortal “A Christmas Carol” at the historic Oak Room at 5479 Lake Road on the Geneva-on-the-lake strip.

It works this way:  Guests sit down for a six-course Christmas feast and find among the folks gathered in the restaurant  Ebenezer Scrooge who begins the story which then unfolds between dinner courses all around the diners.

It is an interactive play in which the diners also become part of the plot as well as participate in some of the festivities like dancing at the party given by Mr. Fezziwig, Scrooge’s boy-hood employer.  Or, playing games when the ghosts of Christmas take Scrooge to a party at his nephew Fred’s home……You can read the rest of the story and also learn about a train ride for the kids to the North Pole to ride with Santa back to Ashtabula County.  My story is in the Saturday, November 27 edition of the Cleveland Plain Dealer or you can read it online at www.Cleveland.com
