Coronado School of the Arts brings the Charles Dickens holiday classic “A Christmas Carol” to life as a 1940s radio broadcast, complete with dance performances and the magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring. A cast comprised of Coronado locals, CoSA students and alumni bring these colorful characters to the stage, as the familiar story unfolds: Three ghosts take Ebenezer Scrooge on a thrilling journey to teach him the true meaning of Christmas. It’s a charming take on a family favorite that will leave no one saying “Bah Humbug!”
“We’re very excited to do a radio play which showcases local talent and all of our conservatories,” said Gina Petrone, director and Vice President of the CoSA Foundation. “This will be our winter fundraiser in conjunction with CoSA’s 25th anniversary.”
The talented and eclectic cast includes Casey Tanaka, Rob Taylor, Phil Monroe, Fred Eckert, Doug St. Denis, Dr. Joseph Mullins, Robert Ward, Bryn Reina, Bella Frost, Eric Carlson, Rachel Brauer and Gabby Ward.
Live performances will be held at the Coronado Performing Arts Center Main Stage located at 650 D Avenue on Dec. 22 and 23 at 7 p.m. Tickets will be available for $25 at the box office 45 minutes prior to performance or online at www.cosafoundation.org/a-christmas-carol/ .
