    “This moving new adaptation frames the classic story of A Christmas Carol as a live radio broadcast on Christmas Eve, 1933 during the height of the Great Depression. A blizzard has struck the small town of Golden Valley, where a radio station is scheduled to perform A Christmas Carol live. Many actors, including a Broadway star set to play Scrooge, call the station manager to say they can’t make it to the station that night. Knowing the show must go on, the manager quickly recasts the show with the handful of people who could get there, including the unassuming station assistant and handyman, as well as a mysterious newcomer who is tapped to play Scrooge. This unlikely troupe of actors, all affected in their own way by the ravages of the Depression, perform the radio play, finding themselves swept up in the story of Scrooge’s redemption. Once the play is finished, each of them finds their hearts changed by the story, filled with “love and a friend’s concern for his fellow man.”

    This new play tells A Christmas Carol in a way you’ve never seen — or heard — before, and is sure to be the right thing to get you into the Christmas spirit!”
