A CHRISTMAS CAROL
A live production by Manhattan's Award-winning QUICKSILVER RADIO THEATER
Faithful to the original, this dramatization of Charles Dickens' story by Quicksilver's founder CRAIG WICHMAN returns the timeless tale of redemption to its haunting roots as a "Ghost Story of Christmas."
Music is by Broadway's MICAH YOUNG. Featured in the cast are Drama Desk Award nominee
JOSEPH FRANCHINI, JOHN PRAVE, St. Rita's Music Director
DEBORAH WILLIAMS, and BERNADETTE FIORELLA,(both of New York City
Opera), JOAN LUNOE, DAN RENKIN, MICKEY RYAN, and a very special guest:
Veteran actor ARTHUR ANDERSON (the original "Lucky Charms Leprechaun")
will recreate his role as "The Ghost of Christmas Past" from Orson Welles' 1938
Mercury Theater production. And this will mark the Staten Islander's first performance
in his native Borough in three quarters of a century!
There is a suggested donation of $10 for adults and $5 for children.
