On a snowy Christmas eve in 1941, the weather has made traveling to the radio station difficult for the actors of Salem's own KSL. They are to perform A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, a well-loved radio tradition in the sleepy town of Salem, Oregon. Trouble ensues when the new Foley sound effects gal arrives late, setting off a series of comic mishaps.
Join Theatre 33 for the return of A Christmas Carol, A 1940's Radio Show, where hope and redemption are not only found in the Dickens story but in the radio actors themselves. Four actors bring dozens of Dickens' characters to life in this fresh look at a timeless tale.
