A Christmas Carol: The Radio Play

Adapted by: Joe Landry

Directed by: Becca Parker*

xmascarolheaderThe Charles Dickens holiday classic comes to life as a live 1940s radio broadcast, complete with vintage commercials for fruitcake (extra-fancy), and the magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring. A handful of actors bring dozens of characters to the stage, as the familiar story unfolds: Three ghosts take Ebenezer Scrooge on a thrilling journey to teach him the true meaning of Christmas. A charming take on a family favorite that will leave no one saying “Bah Humbug!”

Recommended for Ages 10+. Some scenes may be frightening for very young children. (Why did it get this rating?)
