A Christmas Carol (Dramatized): A Radio Play Based on Charles Dickens’ Classic Short Story

It is Christmas Eve, and the air outside is as cold as Scrooge’s heart. Come nightfall, Scrooge receives three visitors: the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Each spirit takes him on a hair-raising journey through time, yielding glimpses of Tiny Tim and Bob Cratchit—and even Scrooge’s painfully hopeful younger self. Will Scrooge’s heart be opened? Can he escape his cursed fate?

    "A Christmas Classic"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Christmas Carol (Dramatized) to be better than the print version?

    YES! I cannot say this emphatically enough. It was the perfect Christmas eve listen as it only runs about an hour long and with the sound effects completely transports the listener to the streets of 19th century England.

    "Energetic audio play"

    This is a full-cast audio play with music and sound effects. It's a deft adaptation of Dickens' story, well-acted, and with one of the scariest Marleys around. For me, it falls just short of five stars because of the mix of American and British accents. By itself that wouldn't be a problem, but in a couple of cases a character will drift unsteadily between the two. It is, however, a lively and mostly satisfying production that captures a surprising amount of the detail of the original.
