A 1940s Radio Christmas Carol

Step back in time to Christmas Eve, 1943, as the Feddington Players present A Christmas Carol live on-air.

After an endless stream of interruptions, technical snafus, and theatrical missteps threaten to tank the broadcast, the company improvises a film noir spin on the classic Dickens tale. Sprinkled with swing arrangements of Christmas standards and original songs in the period style, A 1940s Radio Christmas Carol is the festive comedy to sweeten your holiday season.

By WALTON JONESDAVID WOHL, and FAYE GREENBERG

Run time is approximately 2 hours, including one 15-minute intermission

“The 1940s Christmas Carol” is not a musical, but it offers everything else that made the original so wonderful: Vintage radio advertisements for constipation and BVDs; ingenious live sound effects; a classic radio drama gone comically awry; a heartstring-tugging moment of support for the boys in uniform. Come to think of it, it’s pretty much “Radio Hour” without the music. And audiences are going to love it.
