Set in a makeshift radio station in a Newark, New Jersey hotel ballroom on Christmas Eve, 1943, this festive, sometimes raucous, and ultimately heartwarming comedy depicts the New York-based Feddington Players’ live broadcast of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. When aging Broadway and film star William St. Claire (portrayed by veteran actor, Dan Martschenko) is brought in to voice the role of Ebenezer Scrooge, his lack of radio experience creates havoc for Clifton Feddington (played by Chris McKittrick) and the rest of the players. Throw in a few other unexpected interruptions, mistakes, and a touch of WWII-era pathos, and the Feddington Players must think on their feet to save the broadcast and Tiny Tim. The show also features tunes and carols from the 1940s, classic Foley sound effects, and a generous helping of film noir-styled satire. In other words, this is not your father’s Dickens.
