The Story

Before television there was radio. And before that there was Charles Dickens and his timeless seasonal classic, A Christmas Carol. In this performance, we recreate the age of radio with a stage presentation of Dickens' story. Taken with minor modification from the original radio play produced by The Campbell Soup Company, this production tells the story of a very special Christmas Eve experienced by one Ebenezer Scrooge. Using only stage microphones and a Foley table for sound effects, the cast of this production present an auditory experience, much like what would have been expeienced in the live radio studio many years ago. With a live cast recreating the roles played by Orson Wells and Lionel Barrymore, among others, this is as close to an early 20th century production as you will find.
