This season, Cygnet Theatre will "return to the studio" to present a unique presentation of the classic A CHRISTMAS CAROL complete with holiday music, commercials and their much-loved live sound effects. Cygnet is continuing its annual holiday tradition of presenting a live radio play direct from the "broadcast studios" of WCYG following six yearly presentations of It's A Wonderful Life.

"I enjoy presenting radio plays because so much action takes place in the audience's imagination. We add to the experience by supplying exciting visuals, innovative sound effects and pure talent to help bring the story to life," explained director/adaptor Sean Murray.

The cast will feature Tom Stephenson (Parade, Our Town, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof) as Ebenezer Scrooge and Jonathan Dunn-Rankin (It's a Wonderful Life) as The Announcer. Other cast members include Maggie Carney, Melissa Fernandes (Little Shop of Horrors, Cabaret, It's A Wonderful Life), David McBean, and Tim West (It's A Wonderful Life, The Tragedy of The Commons, Communicating Doors).

Jason Connors (It's A Wonderful Life, Our Town, The Matchmaker) returns to handle the Foley effects which will evoke the chilly sounds of winter, ghosts, chains, scary cemeteries, and family dinners, as well as period sounds from the 1940's. The production will feature an original score by Billy Thompson.

Cygnet's performance schedule for all shows will be Wednesdays & Thursdays at 7:30pm, Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 3pm and 8pm and Sundays at 2pm and 7pm. Previews begin November 23 with an official run from December 1 through December 30.
