After a 35-year tradition, the Players of Utica will say goodbye to the Christmastime classic 'Scrooge.'

It's sad to see something that was a part of our community - That brought our community together, disappear. The Players of Utica has announced that this is the last year they will run "Scrooge." The decision to end the show was based on economic reasons - With rising costs, the show just couldn't stay afloat.

If you have not seen their production of "Scrooge," this is your last chance. There will be three performances held - Two for the general public and one for schools and organizations.

According to the Players of Utica, the final school performance will be on Thursday, December 8th at 10am.

The final public performances will be Friday, December 9th at 7:30pm and Saturday, December 10th at 2pm.

Tickets are $15 a person for the general public.

A statement from the Players of Utica website says,

Players wishes to thank Director Peter Loftus, the community, the many cast members, families and volunteers that have supported the Players of Utica Theatre and shared our vision for the past 35 years...

Such a sad thing to see leave the Utica area. Make sure you make time out to see the Players of Utica perform "Scrooge" one last time.
