The Plaza Theatre, on Monterey Square in Wharton, will be presenting “A Christmas Carol: A Live Radio Play, “by Kevin Connors, adapted for the stage by Joe Landry, and directed by Quinn Wrench.
This seasonal favorite is scheduled Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Dec. 6-15. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 p.m., with Sunday matinee performances beginning at 2:30 p.m.
“This radio play version of A Christmas Carol is a fun way to present a classic story to our audiences,” said Darve Smith, Plaza executive director. “We are hoping this will be a great way for families to kick off the holiday season together at the Plaza.”
About the Show: 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!”
General admission is $15.
