The familiar story features Cameron Denny as Ebenezer Scrooge and Mina Hagan, Peyton Kern, Clayton Capernos and Aiden Larson as the ghosts who help to turn the elderly miser into a kinder, more generous person on the night before Christmas.

Twenty-four Glenelg High School students will appear on the stage along with 13 young students from Pointers Run, Bushy Park, Lisbon, Dayton Oaks and Triadelphia Ridge elementary schools.

Keeping everything running smoothly will be Kassidy Sharp, the Theatre Arts director at Glenelg.

According to Anna Hintz, who appears as Miss Fezziwig, “This show will definitely get you into the Christmas spirit. The cast is energetic and the show is phenomenal. I am so glad to be a part of this amazing cast. I hope the audience has as much fun watching it as we will performing it!”

Ellie’s Bake Sale has, once again, proven to be a resounding success. In one day Ellie Feaga and her family and friends raised almost $8,000 for Labs for Liberty. It costs $,3000 to $4,000 per dog for training, travel, medical care, equipment and food. Two Labrador retriever puppies will now be raised and trained to become service dogs for two veterans.

The lives of two veterans and their families and friends will be forever changed, thanks to Ellie, our community and many delicious baked goods.
