The Willamette Radio Workshop presents a “live radio style” performance of Charles Dickens’ Christmas Carol, adapted by Cynthia McGean from the source and the Campbell Playhouse versions.  The classic Christmas story of Scrooge and Tiny Tim finds it?s natural home in the radio medium, the theater of the mind. A ghost story told to remind mankind of the perils of greed and isolation at a time of the year when our community needs more help than ever. This years cast includes Curtis Hanson, Cynthia McGean, Renee Boutin King, Chris Porter, James Dineen, Alyson Ayn Osborn and Sam A. Mowry. Live music and carols provided by The Holly Jolly Radio Singers under the direction of Bennett Bailey.  Plus in the tradition of the Golden Age of Radio, live Foley by David Ian and Dino de AElfweald.  The show is an hour in length and suitable for all ages.DSC_1270

The award winning Willamette Radio Workshop wants to help preserve the history of Radio Theatre and to this end our work includes re-creations or re-imaginings of Classic Radio programs like The Campbell Playhouses? Christmas Carol with Orson Welles and Lionel Barrymore. We also just love to put on a great show.

Please also join us after the performance for the opening of “Move. Touch. Feel.” at Nouspace Gallery & Media Lounge (right next door at the Niche Wine Bar) We’ll be hosting a reception for the opening, with an opportunity for a Q&A with the actors and Foley artists.  Plus a few carols by the Holly Jolly Singers.
