Step back in time by listening to ‘A Christmas Carol: The Radio Show’ | Culture & Leisure


EFind out what it’s like to take part in an early 20th century radio show while listening to holiday treasure.

The Marysville Opera House will host a free staged reading of “A Christmas Carol: The Radio Show”, based on the classic Charles Dickens story. The staged reading takes place from 6.30 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. on Monday, December 13.

Those attending the free event will be able to participate in the reading using cue cards that tell the audience when to ‘Ooh’ and ‘Ah’ and when to clap, said Chris Taylor, cultural arts supervisor for the city of. Marysville.

A Christmas Carol is the final event in the series of Staged Readings from Marysville. The first event was around Halloween and featured readings from Oscar Wilde and Edgar Allen Poe, Taylor said.

In addition to the concerts and weddings that often take place at the Marysville Opera House, Taylor said the goal was to add more performances and the reading series was a good place to start.

“It would be a great first step to throw that ball,” said Taylor.

He said the Halloween event was a success with around 100 people in attendance.

Taylor said plans are underway for an Easter-themed event to take place in April.
