A Christmas Carol begins in a 1940s radio soundstage, with a group of actors preparing to tell the classic tale. The original Dickens story is all here: Scrooge refuses a Christmas dinner invitation from his nephew, Fred, turns away charity workers raising money for the poor and bullies his clerk, Bob Cratchit. Jacob Marley makes his visit while the sound effects crew shakes chains; Ghosts from the Past, Present and Future lead Scrooge through the streets of London and into the Cratchit family home. Will Scrooge awaken a new man? Will Tiny Tim offer redemption?
Theatre CBS is excited to bring this wonderful story to Worsley Park, just in time to kick of the holiday season. Originally produced by public television station KTWU in Kansas, this version of A Christmas Carol has aired on television throughout North America.
