A Christmas Carol, probably the most popular piece of fiction that Charles Dickens ever wrote, was published in 1843. The book is as popular today as it was over 150 years ago. Charles Dickens, through the voice of Scrooge, continues to urge us to honour Christmas in our hearts and try to keep it all the year round. Technically speaking, A Christmas Carol was published by Chapman & Hall. However, in an interesting turn of events, Dickens paid the publishing costs himself. Dickens was adamant that A Christmas Carol be published as a high-quality, stand-alone book.

With A Christmas Carol, Dickens helped reorient Christmas to focus on. .

With A Christmas Carol, Dickens helped reorient Christmas to focus on humanitarianism. He popularized the phrase Merry Christmas. He helped Christmas become a day for feasting and family, even in the crowded city. And he instilled a collective yearning for a white Christmas, one that recalled his happy boyhood in the countryside, where a snowy holiday was all but assured. Lantern Theater Company’s original adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol runs December 6 through 29, 2019, in the Proscenium Theatre at The Drake. This production was commissioned and developed in 2018 as part of the Lantern’s New Works Program.

Home Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol. A christmas carol, . And even Scrooge was not so dreadfully cut up by the sad event, but that he was an excellent man of business on the very day of the funeral, and solemnised it with an undoubted bargain. The mention of Marley's funeral brings me back to the point I started from. There is no doubt that Marley was dead.

His nephew left the room, without an angry word, stopping only to wish Bob Cratchit a merry Christmas. On the small fire in the bedroom there was a pot of soup, and Scrooge’s bowl was ready on the table. Then two other gentlemen came in. They were large, round, comfortable-looking men, with books and papers in their hands. This is Scrooge and Marley’s, I think, said one of them, looking at the papers that he was carrying. Nobody in any of the rooms! Sure that he was safe now, Scrooge shut and locked his bedroom door behind him. He sat down by the fire to eat his soup.

Capture the wonder of the holiday season year-round with A Christmas Carol. Remaining true to Dickens' original Christian tale, this dramatization presents the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, the ghosts of Christmases past, present, and future, and, of course, Tiny Tim. It's a captivating presentation that will delight listeners and impress upon their hearts its life-changing message.

My 14 yr old son does not like reading, so this was an easy way for him to take in the book, for school. He actually really liked it, which is rare for him!

No problems

I enjoyed the cassettes of a Christmas Carol, but I submitted that I wanted a CD of The Christmas Carol, not cassettes.

This is a good production of a classic work. It seems to capture the "feel" of the story (as I understand it), but not with the impact that I expected. Probably too graphic for younger children.

Great story.

I love this CD! It sounds exactly what it is, an old timey radio broadcast with all the sound effects and different voices for each actor!!

I was a young boy the first time my mom read Charles Dickens' classic A CHRISTMAS CAROL to my family. Over the years, it has become an established part of my Christmas traditions, with several versions potentially filling the bill for my consumption each year. This year, I decided to listen to this full cast radio drama version.

The story is the same old one we have grown to love. Scrooge is a miser in 1840's London. He has no use for Christmas or human emotion of any kind. The only thing he cares about is earning more money. One Christmas Eve, he is visited by the spirit of his dead business partner. Jacob Marley has come back to warn Scrooge about the dangers of continuing his miserly ways. To further help Scrooge, Marley promises the Spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Future will visit him. But will this be enough to reform Scrooge?

I'll admit, it's been years since I actually read the book, so I can't offer a point by point analysis of how this 90 minute radio drama adaptation compares to the book. I will say that there were several scenes with the Ghost of Christmas Past I didn't remember hearing before, but I liked them as they helped us show the progression of Scrooge's character from the youth to the miser. My biggest problem story purity wise was with the Ghost of Christmas Future. They actually give him a voice. It was perfectly creepy and fit the character well. In addition, they give him as few lines as they possibly can. But since they had a narrator, I wish they had stuck with the voiceless Spirit of the original.

This isn't to say this version is bad. The actors do a great job making the characters come to life. The sound effects and original score further help tell the story. At times, in an attempt to show a character was in another room, the characters were a little hard to hear, however. This was only a problem in a few scenes. Overall, the spirit of the original is perfectly captured by this retelling.

One addition I really liked was David Suchet as the host. His parts surround the story and help put it in its proper historic context. I had forgotten just what was happening in England that prompted Dickens to write this story, and the reminder made me see it with fresh eyes.

While not perfect, this is still a great version of a classic Christmas tale. It will introduce kids to the story and hold the entire family's attention during any long holiday trip.
This is word for word from the book. LOVE IT!!! :) It's our family's new tradition and it wouldn't be Christmas without it.
