Towngate Theatre presents A Christmas Carol Radio Show adapted by T. S. Stobart December 4-6 & 11-12, 2020. Curtain is at 7pm. A 3pm matinee takes place Sunday, December 6.

In the days before television, listening to Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol performed live on the radio was a holiday tradition in America. Let us take you back in time as Towngate recreates an original 1940s radio show – WTGT – complete with live music, vocals and sound effects. All your favorite characters are here, too, including Mr. Scrooge, the Cratchit Family, the Ghost of Christmas Past and more.

Admission is $12.50/$11 OI members. Purchase tickets online or call 304-242-7700.
