SYNOPSIS

The 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!"

 

The actors actually perform the play, with emotive gestures and character interactions that wouldn’t be necessary in an actual radio broadcast. So, the audience gets two plays for the price of one – the actors playing their roles as the

radio personalities as well as the characters in the Dickens’ story.

 

Following is a list of Radio actor characters, and the characters in the story for which they will provide different voices. Ideally, this could be done with only 5 actors. Yet, for the sake of variety of voicing, additional radio actor characters may be cast.
