Overview

"That Cute Little Elf" from the 2017 musical 1940s Radio Christmas Carol

It's Christmas Eve, 1943, and the Feddington Players are now broadcasting from a hole-in-the-wall studio in Newark, NJ, 
and set to present their contemporary "take" on Dickens's A Christmas Carol. Whether it's the noisy plumbing, missed cues, 
electrical blackouts, or the over-the-top theatrics of veteran actor, but radio novice, William St. Claire, this radio show is an 
entertaining excursion into the mayhem and madness of a live radio show. St. Claire's escalating foibles and acting missteps 
propel the show to a simultaneously comedic and heart-wrenching dramatic climax: St. Claire has an on-air breakdown, and 
begins to connect his own life with that of the classic Dickens tale. In order to "save the show," the company improvises an 
ending to Charles Dickens' classic as a film noir mystery, featuring a hardboiled detective, a femme fatale, and an absurd rescue
of Tiny Tim (and the Lindbergh baby) from the clutches of a Hitler-esque villain named Rudolf!
