Jacob Marley returns for more spooky holiday fun in Naples

Cody Nickell as Jacob Marley in JACOB MARLEY’S CHRISTMAS CAROL.

For about 2-1/2 hours, it’s Cody Nickell as Jacob Marley and only Nickell onstage for the holiday play “Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol.” He plays all 18 characters in the behind-the-scenes retelling of the Charles Dickens classic “A Christmas Carol,” including Ebenezer Scrooge, his ghostly former partner Jacob Marley and a raisin-sized imp called a bogle.

And he does it all without a single prop – only creative lighting and sound effects, his flexible voice, his posture, a huge arsenal of facial expressions and a boundless imagination.
