Want to see Dickens' holiday classic live but don't want to brave the crowds or spend a fortune for tickets?

Head over to the Bernardsville Public Library at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 15, to catch Raconteur Radio version of the play, “A Christmas Carol: A Staged Radio Play."

The new version of Dickens' masterpiece features theatrical lighting, vintage commercials, Victorian carols, and extensive sound effects, according to information from the Bernardsville Public Library, located at 1 Anderson Hill Road in Bernardsville.

Doors open at 2:45 pm.  There is no charge to attend and no sign-up is needed. 

The program, suitable for adults and children aged 10 and older, is funded by the Friends of the Bernardsville Public Library. 

Adapted from Charles Dickens’ classic novella, the story tells of a misanthropic penny-pincher named Ebenezer Scrooge and his ideological, ethical, and emotional transformation after the supernatural visits of Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come.  

The play features Michael Jarmus as everybody’s favorite Christmas crank as well as Carlyle Owens, Gwen Owens, Laurence Mintz, and Alex Dawson.

Raconteur Radio stages theatrical presentations of classic and original radio plays for live audiences throughout the Tri-State area.  

More information on the troupe is on their website.
