A Southern Utah University annual holiday classic A CHRISTMAS CAROL ON THE AIR, stars Utah Shakespeare Festival founder, Fred C. Adams as Ebenezer Scrooge.

This “live” radio stage show tells the story of The Wright Brothers, Chick and Stu, and their traveling troupe of players who come to town to spread Christmas cheer to the local community by helping them present a radio version of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. We soon find out that Chick has lost the holiday spirit, which threatens to break up the brotherly bond.  However, when he receives an unexpected visit from a most unlikely soul, he learns, as does Scrooge, that there is much more to life than material desires.  

Written by Sham & Carroll, the creators of the West End musical comedy, LEND ME A TENOR THE MUSICAL, this show is a laugh-filled, heartwarming, holiday treat for the whole family. Originally produced by the Utah Shakespeare Festival in 2004.

Play & Lyrics by Peter Sham   
Music & Score by Brad Carroll

Based on A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
