'Christmas Carol' takes to the airwaves - on stage


“He’s doing fantastic,” said Sasha Zbitnoff about his son. “This is a wonderful group of people to work with.”

Spencer Zbitnoff agreed. He said since he has seen many different versions of “A Christmas Carol” he can picture how each scene should look, which helps him with his role.

So, with so many versions of “A Christmas Carol” being presented during the holiday season, why see this one?

“Well, you have probably never seen a female Scrooge. And you probably have never seen or heard a presentation that solely relies on vocal abilities. It forces you to use your imagination,” said Curtin Cameron.

“It’s set up like an old-time radio show: What could be more fun than that?” added Louise Dolan of Haverhill. Dolan plays the producer of the radio show. “It’s just been a very fun and exciting experience.”

“There is a beauty in local, community, theater and the sense of celebrating Christmas as a community,” said Wilson.
