A CHRISTMAS CAROL A Radio Play Based on Charles Dickens' Classic Short Story

by | Read by Maurice LaMarche, Rob Paulson, Neil Flynn, Robbie Rist

Audio Theater • 1.25 hrs. • Audio Program • © 1843

This enjoyable audio adaptation of the preeminent Dickens classic opens with festive holiday music and features crisp and haunting state-of-the-art sounds: creaking doors, chiming church bells, winter winds, and rattling chains. But what keeps the production grounded and refreshing is that the script stays very close to the heightened language and keen dialogue of the original 1843 text. We all know the dialogue of Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, and Tiny Tim (their story is a part of our cultural DNA), and the cast does an admirable job bringing the sounds of Christmases Past, Present, and Future to life. Though it’s been adapted and performed in every imaginable setting and time period, as this production artfully illustrates, A CHRISTMAS CAROL can be most extraordinary when served traditionally.
