Elkdale Baptist To Present Free Play

The Elkdale Baptist Church of West Clifford will present a special musical play, "The Grouch Who Found Christmas" on New Year’s Eve, at 7 p.m. The presentation includes an original drama and music written by Pastor Frank Bissol and his family and will be performed by the Elkdale Baptist Church choir. Enhanced by a multimedia presentation, the live drama will feature Joey Aikens, Joe Bissol and Melody Bissol.

A CD of the program will be available that night. The drama, along with the music, will be made available at no charge to other churches; choir directors or ministers may obtain directions that evening on how to download the play from the Internet for their church’s nonprofit use.

"The Grouch Who Found Christmas" is about a greedy Wall Street millionaire who cleverly manipulates stocks (like the recent Enron scandals), then makes a fortune by letting his companies go belly-up. (His name is Mr. Doug Grosh, but his employees secretly call him Mr. Grouch.) He likens his manipulation of the stock market on Wall Street to the sport of fishing. The play unfolds with a series of events that cause Mr. Grosh to discover the real meaning of Christmas.

If you are looking for a wholesome family activity this New Year’s Eve, the Elkdale Baptist Church of West Clifford cordially invites you to attend this program. Admission is free, and refreshments will be served after the program. For more information or directions, feel free to call the church at (570) 222–3723.
