‘A Christmas Carol: A Radio Play’

Scripps Ranch Theatre (SRT), in conjunction with Oceanside Theatre Company (OTC), celebrate the holidays with “A Christmas Carol: A Radio Play.” 

Join these two theater companies from the studios of “WOTC Radio” for an encore presentation of this adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic tale of miserly curmudgeon Ebenezer Scrooge and his visit from the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future. An OTC original adaptation, this is great fun for the whole family.

Watch this encore presentation free of charge as a holiday present from Oceanside Theatre Company and Scripps Ranch Theatre.

Originally, these two theatre companies planned to livestream the performance of “A Christmas Carol: A Radio Play” from the stage of the Brooks Theatre in Oceanside this year. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the two companies have adjusted. Instead, they will provide a filmed version of the 2018 version of “A Christmas Carol: A Radio Play” for free to the community. This encore version was filmed Dec. 23, 2018. The production is available to watch Dec. 19 to Jan. 3 this year. This is the link: http://scrippsranchtheatre.org/christmascarol2020.

“Theatre looks so different this year and the San Diego theatre community has adjusted. We are looking forward to sharing some holiday tradition with our audiences of all ages in a safe way,” said Ted Leib, OTC artistic director and director of “A Christmas Carol: A Radio Play.” “We are happy to join forces with Scripps Ranch Theatre once again to share this holiday classic.”
