Live Holiday Radio Play in Westminster
“A Christmas Carol” with Ebenezer Scrooge, Dickens’ classic tale, will be performed as a live radio play by the Advent Radio Players on Sunday, December 9th at 2 p.m. at Advent Lutheran Church in Westminster. It will be presented just as it was originally broadcast on December 24th, 1939 on the CBS Campbell Playhouse featuring Orson Welles as the Narrator and Lionel Barrymore as Scrooge. Donations are appreciated ($7 suggested).
For the past six years, the Advent Radio Players have recreated old time radio shows from the original scripts using several microphones and sound effects from the original programs just as they were heard on the radio. Each play is performed like a live radio show including lighted applause and on the air signs. Advent Lutheran Church is at 7979 Meade St. in Westminster.
