Christmas Classic Radio Theater Presents A Christmas Carol
adapted and directed by Becky Mayo
“A radio station is broadcasting “A Christmas Carol” live before a studio audience”. In the past, the Adobe was renowned for its December radio shows – we hope fans of the genre will be pleased to see this new radio classic.
The Christmas show opening Friday, November 23rd at The Adobe Theater is a terrific blend of the classical and the unexpected. A radio station is broadcasting Charles Dickens’ beloved Christmas story, “A Christmas Carol” live, before a studio audience. The Adobe audience will watch the actors at the microphones, scripts in hand, create characters (sometimes more than one character) as they take the audience to 19th Century London to meet Marley’s Ghost, Scrooge, and Tiny Tim. Music and sound effects happen live onstage with assistance from the “studio” audience.
The delightful retelling of this favorite holiday classic about the transformation from greed to generosity, embraces the true holiday spirit of kindness and goodwill. The script, adapted by Becky Mayo who also directs the production, retains the charm and mystery of the original story and also Dickens’ familiar language. In the past, the Adobe was renowned for its December radio shows, and this tradition continues in a holiday production suitable for all ages.
Cast members include a mix of Adobe veterans (Virginia Dare Chavez, Brian Hansen, Alan Hudson, Frank Melcouri, Ray Orley, Rick Wiles, Linda Williams and Hugh Witemeyer) and newcomers (Soraya Baraque, Erica Entrop, Tom Pentecost, J. R. Ramoso, Athena Swartz and Michelle Varela).
