A 1940’s Radio Christmas Carol

COMMUNITY THEATRE OF LITTLE ROCK: A 1940’s Radio Christmas Carol: It's Christmas Eve, 1943, and the Feddington Players are now broadcasting from a hole-in-the-wall studio in Newark, N.J., and set to present their contemporary "take" on Dickens's A Christmas Carol. Whether it's the noisy plumbing, missed cues, electrical blackouts, or the over-the-top theatrics of veteran actor, but radio novice, William St. Claire, this radio show is an entertaining excursion into the mayhem and madness of a live radio show. St. Claire's escalating foibles and acting missteps propel the show to a simultaneously comedic and heart-wrenching dramatic climax: St. Claire has an on-air breakdown, and begins to connect his own life with that of the classic Dickens tale. In order to "save the show," the company improvises an ending to Charles Dickens' classic as a film noir mystery, featuring a hardboiled detective, a femme fatale, and an absurd rescue of Tiny Tim from the clutches of a Hitler-esque villain named Rudolf. Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and again Nov. 23-24 as well as Dec. 1-2. Sunday matinees will be held at 2 p.m. this Sunday as well as Dec. 2 at the PUBLIC Theatre, 616 Center St. There will also be a special 7:30 p.m. performance on Thanksgiving night. Regular admission is $16 for adults and $14 for military, students and seniors age 65 and over. Children age six and under are free. This Season, CTLR is partnering with Go! Running Athletic Shoe Store, Little Rock Road Runner’s Club and the Running Reshoe Program to collect new and gently used shoes. Bring a pair of gently-used running shoes and receive $1 off admission. For specific information, about the “A Mile in Their Shoes” campaign, contact Erin at (501) 813-7155.
