My Christmas season isn’t complete until I have seen A Christmas Carol in some form, as it is one of my favorite Christmas stories. This year I got a jump-start on that by seeing it on stage presented by Good Company Players at 2nd Space in Fresno.

I was ten years old. That was a long time ago, before television and all of the electronic gimmickry that permeate today’s world. We, my younger brother, Timmy and I, got our entertainment by listening to the radio, usually with the lights out as Inner Sanctum and some of the old, classic radio programs scared us out of our wits. Cool! There was nothing like a good scary radio program in the dark to get one’s creative juices flowing. Some of the best, deliciously awful pranks I pulled on Timmy were inspired while listening to the radio.

I attended a play called Scrooge, based on A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens on Sunday December 26, showing at Cabrillo Stage Theatre in Aptos, near Santa Cruz from December 17-30, 2010. The play is directed by Andrew Ceglio who was born in San Jose and now lives in Capitola.

If you are looking for something special to do this Christmas, I highly recommend the one man show of A Christmas Carol, performed by Chris Mangels, now on stage at the Enchanted Playhouse in Visalia.
