The Stagecoach Players Theatre presents "A Christmas Carol." Ebenezer Scrooge has lost his only friend, his business partner Jacob Marley. Seven years have passed since Marley's Christmas death, and Scrooge has not changed a bit. He still refuses to give to the poor, suggesting that for them perhaps the only place better than prison is the grave. He still only grudgingly gives his employee Christmas day off, and he still refuses his nephew's offer of Christmas dinner. He dismisses the whole holiday as a "Humbug." This play is adapted and directed by Dan Hyde from a story by Charles Dickens. Showing on the following dates and times: Nov. 26th and Dec. 1-3 @ 7:30 pm; Nov. 27th and Dec.3-4 @ 2:00 pm

It has become far too easy in our consumer culture for us to forget that coffee is a crop. This means that coffee is something that is grown by farmers; it requires workers to harvest, to mill, to dry, and a list of other tasks that happen well before those beans ever arrive to us. We believe if handled properly at origin, coffee has the potential to be respected and treated like a fine wine. We aim to bring in coffees that have been grown properly and responsibly. Quality sourcing is just the first step in our journey toward the best possible flavor in the resulting cups of coffee we make.

Charles Ross will stun and amaze you with his fun, energetic and extremely entertaining performance of One Man Star Wars Trilogy. The result of Charles Ross’ ‘misspent’ youth is the creation of his hilarious One Man Star Wars Trilogy show, where Ross single-handedly plays all the characters with spot-on voice impressions, sings the music, flies the ships, fights the battles and condenses the plots of the three films into one hilarious production. Suitable for Star Wars fans from ages 6 to Yoda! ‘The Force’ will definitely be with you!
