Chosen for supporters of OTA radio plays produced and released during the pandemic, this play allows the performing arts center to finally invite everyone back to live theater on the main stage Elaine & Robert Caldwell .

“Everyone knows A Christmas Carol, almost by heart,” said director Merv Wingard, who also stars as Ebenezer Scrooge.

“And what would Christmas be without it?” It is truly a literary masterpiece written for all time,” Wingard said.
