Dear Mars Hill Community: We regret to inform you that the scheduled production of SCROOGE! has been canceled. While this was an incredibly difficult decision, it was necessary due to the health and welfare of an actor in a major role. We will be contacting all patrons who have made a reservation or who purchased tickets. If you have purchased tickets, you may get a refund at the University Box Office. Please contact 828-689-1239 for more information.


The timeless story of a poor girl who is bereft of any kindness in her life and overcomes adversity to live happily ever after, is a story we can all find joy in. Root for Cinderella and her most happy fella in the inaugural production of the James Thomas Black Box Theatre. If the shoe fits……why not wear it!!

Book and Lyrics by Joel Paley
Music by Marvin Laird 

Ruthless! is a camp cult classic in which the beautiful and talented 8-year-old Tina Denmark will do anything to play the lead in her school play.... ANYTHING! The show famously spoofs Broadway musicals as well as iconic films including The Bad Seed and All About Eve. Ruthless! is a roller coaster ride through the world of Broadway, child actors, stage mothers, parenthood, fame and unbridled ambition. 

Directed by Jessica West
Musical Direction by Joel P. Rogers
