The Players of Utica are busy rehearsing for their newest production, 'The Christmas Carol Murders.' For the first time in 35 years, the cast are not performing Scrooge. Instead, they're perform an interactive murder-mystery comedy.

Starting December 8th, the Players of Utica will perform 'The Christmas Carol Murders.'

"There's an amateur theater group that is preparing to put on their annual production of a Christmas Carol and they seem like a very jovial and friendly group but all is not what it seems," said director and producer JoAnn Mox. "There's murder and there's mayhem and there's mystery."

As a member of the audience you can participate too. "It is interactive with the audience there will be different times that we'll call upon audience people to participate and also there's an opportunity for our guests to solve the mystery."

While the cast is no longer performing Scrooge, they've incorporated it into this year's production.

"It was a wonderful tradition that we did for 35 years. We were blessed to be able to bring that to the community for that long. This is our first year coming off Scrooge and we wanted to do something for the holidays to fill that little bit of a void that weekend. We have the fireplace and we have different pieces of scrooge because it is such an important part of our heritage
