An Old Time Christmas Radio show
"A Christmas Carol " 
by Phillip Grecian.

October 2, 3 & 4 from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm 
This joint effort between BDACT and WBEV/WXRO is being held at the community theater, 219 N. Spring St., in Beaver Dam. Please use the side entrance on 3rd street and check in at the make-up room before coming downstairs. Also bring your potential conflict dates.

There are roles from ages 8 and up. Many adult roles available. NO memorization is required. Emphasis will be on reading and facial expressions.

This will be a fully costumed radio show like the ones performed in the 1940's. Limited rehearsals until we get closer to the live performance dates. The show dates are December 15, 16 and 17. One of the performances will be taped for a future replay on the radio.

Sound effects will be done live on the stage so people are needed for that as well as lighting and stage crew.

This is a fun and easy way to give the theater a try!

Scripts are available for perusal at Beaver Dam, Horicon and Mayville libraries!

Any questions please contact director, Dan Bell at 920-387-3923 or producer, Diane Rabehl at 920-296-3172.
