The Charles Dickens holiday classic comes to
life as a live 1940s radio broadcast, complete with vintage commercials for
fruitcake (extra-fancy), and the magic of live sound effects and musical
underscoring. A handful of actors bring dozens of characters to the stage, as
the familiar story unfolds: Three ghosts take Ebenezer Scrooge on a thrilling
journey to teach him the true meaning of Christmas. A charming take on a family
favorite that will leave no one saying, "Bah Humbug!"
Whether he's backstage, onstage or working on the rail, Bruce is always thrilled and honoured to be a part of the MHMT family. He's excited about the opportunity to kindle your Christmas spirit! To you and yours, Bah Humbug and a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

“As the comedy and variety genre of radio programming boomed in the 1940s, so did the appearance of music groups on many of the top radio shows of the day. Groups like the Andrews Sisters grew in popularity due to their appearance on a number of these programs. For this years version of MHMT Playhouse of the Air, we are pleased to present our own throwback to this golden age of radio with the Volk Family Singers - played every night on stage by: Geoff Coley, Brenda McLaren, Colleen Whidden, and John Whidden.”
