Scrooge: A Radio Play
Step back in time and catch the story of Scrooge told as if it were shared over radio in the 1920s. Friday, Dec. 7, 7 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 8, 1 p.m. in Waveland Hall, Mark Gruber shares his rendition of this age-old story, sponsored by the Arts@Plymouth. Scrooge is an awful man, but on this Christmas Eve with the help of three ghosts who drag the unwilling Scrooge from his bed, he’ll be given another chance to see Christmas with the new-found insight of the wondrous gift that’s given! Scrooge sees his life anew, and just in time. The charity to all in need at Christmas is to share and spread the good cheer that blessings come in all shapes and sizes. In our telling, harken back to that golden age of radio and gather round our giant radio stage to hear Dicken’s tale of Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit and his family, Scrooge’s nephew Fred, the Christmas carolers, Marley’s ghost dragging his chains and moaning his sorry predicament to walk the earth after his death, and of course the ghosts. THREE of them. Gather round to hear Charles Dicken’s classic ghost story that ends very well — even for ole Scrooge. Bah Humbug.
