Port Arthur Little Theater Logo

It’s your last chance to see Port Arthur Little Theatre’s Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol on Friday, Dec. 1 through Sunday, Dec. 3. This play is a spooky look into the afterlife of Scrooge’s deceased old business partner Jacob Marley. Chained and shackled, Marley is condemned to a hellish eternity. He’s even given his own private tormentor — a malicious little sprite who thoroughly enjoys his work. Desperate, Marley accepts his one chance to free himself. To escape his own chains, he must first redeem Scrooge.
