Moline’s Black Box Theatre Presenting ‘Christmas Carol: On The Air’
Christmas comes to the Black Box Theatre as they present “Christmas Carol: On the Air,” featuring the classic Dickens story amongst the trappings of a 1940’s radio show. The cast includes Kayla Jo Pulliam Mendoza, Wendy Czekalski, Matt Walsh, Renaud Haymon, Scott Tunnicliff, Scot Gehret, Patrick Gimm, Patti Flaherty, Dee Canfield, Tom Vaccaro and Adrienne Jane Evans. Directed and designed by Lora Adams with Light design by David Miller.
“I decided to adapt the story myself because we have done a number of radio plays and I thought it might be fun to add my own spin on it,” said Adams. “People always enjoy watching the foley operator create the sounds. Even though it’s a play, the audience gets a peek that not all characters match the actors portraying them. That’s the fun of a radio play.”
“A Christmas Carol: On the Air” runs December 2 through 12. There will not be a show on December 4th as it will be the 10th Anniversary Show of Wisenheimer taking over The Black Box Theatre stage. Tickets are available for both shows at theblackboxtheatre.com. Wisenheimer tickets are $10 each. A Christmas Carol tickets are $13 on Thursday and $16 for all other performances.
