This family-friendly adaptation of the popular holiday tradition captures the magic of Dickens’ Yuletide classic that tells the story of the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future as they lead Ebenezer Scrooge on a journey of transformation and redemption.

Director Janine Christl discovered a versatile adaptation of “A Christmas Carol Radio Version” earlier this year that gave her students the opportunity to try out the new venture of recording for radio and performing a live show.  

The show is set as a Hollywood 1940s radio broadcast. Christl says it give the actors an opportunity to play both the 1940s radio actor and the characters of A Christmas Carol.

“Focusing on voice work all semester has helped the student performers find their character through their sound in impressive ways. These 1940s radio actors are just as interesting as the play itself. Along with that, we’ve created an outdoor performance setting for celebrating the holidays, beautiful 1940’s costumes and a Holiday Faire,” she said.

This fall semester marks the return of live theater to Fresno City College.  Christl says this adaptation is the perfect way to resume on campus performances after a long season of a quiet theatre building due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The traditional themes of gratitude that appear in A Christmas Carol have been a gift to our cast. We have approached our return to the theatre with a sense a gratitude and appreciation for our time together and the chance to share our joy with others,” she noted.
