Travel back in time to the Golden Age of Radio for a live recreation of a vintage holiday broadcast of Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol. With holiday music, retro commercials and live foley sound effects, Cygnet Theatre transports you to Christmas Eve 1944 as the WCYG Playhouse of the Air players bring the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and his three ghostly visitors to life. This nostalgic vision of the timeless holiday tale is an original way to get the whole family in the Christmas spirit. Learn More

I've become a big fan of one-man theatrical performances ( Hal Holbrook as Mark Twain, Ed Asner as FDR etc... ).
This presentation was engaging and entertaining - excellent theatre!
Francis Gercke, as Henry David Thoreau, did a splendid job of not only telling the story of Thoreau but making him relevant to today's audience ( there was a high school group in attendance which seemed engaged enough throughout - no small feat! ).
The set of PARADE ( current Cygnet Production ) lent itself well to the period of Walden; with a simple desk/chair and a podium added. The lighting was very effective and the simple piano soundtrack enjoyable.
