    The original Dickens story is all here in this familiar tale told as a radio drama onstage, complete with sound effects and music, minimal costuming and a simple set. The storyteller begins, transforming into the mean and stingy Ebenezer Scrooge as he speaks. Throughout, the storyteller remains in the Scrooge characterization as the other actors narrate in their natural voices while assuming new voices and dialects, becoming every character in the tale.
