A 1940s RADIO CHRISTMAS CAROL
NOV 22–DEC 22
By Walton Jones, David Wohl, Faye Greenberg
Directed by Sean Byrd
Music Direction by Jean Orbison Van Heel
It's Christmas Eve, 1943, and the Feddington Players are preparing for a live radio broadcast of their own version of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Playing Scrooge is William St. Clair, a veteran actor with no radio experience. Complicated by noisy plumbing, missed cues, electrical blackouts, and the over-the-top theatrics of their special guest, the broadcast takes a hilarious turn when the performers are forced to improvise a hysterically unusual ending in order to “save the show.”
Featuring swing arrangements of Christmas standards and four delightful original songs, A 1940s Radio Christmas Carol seamlessly combines heartwarming drama and side-splitting comedy into a sweetly nostalgic musical classic that will be sure to fill your heart with the spirit of the season.
Tickets range from $30–35. Please visit the Ticket Information section of our website for more details.
