PimaArts Alumni “A 1940’s Radio Christmas Carol”

Join Pima Arts Alumni on Friday,  December 4th-One night only- “A 1940’s Radio Christmas Carol.”  Alumni Guest Artists include, Alexis Burrows (Cardieri), Gaby De Brequet, Chris Dobson, Maria Gawne, Thea Hinojosa, Chach Snook, Todd Thompson, Erin Thompson and David Zinke. Several alums are pulling double duty:  Maria Gawne (Director), Music Director Alexis Burrows (Cardieri) (Music Director) and Andrea Pratt (Producer) create a concert-style format that is socially distanced.

Storyline: It’s Christmas Eve, 1943, and the Feddington Players are preparing for a live radio broadcast of their own version of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.  Complicated by noisy plumbing, missed cues, electrical blackouts, and the over-the-top theatrics of their special guest, the broadcast takes a hilarious turn when the performers are forced to improvise a hysterically unusual ending in order to “save the show.”  Featuring swing arrangements of Christmas standards and four original songs, A 1940’s Christmas Carol is a heartwarming and laugh-out-loud piece that will give you all the holiday feels you have been craving.  Donations to “A 1940’s Radio Christmas Carol” will seed the Pima Theatre Achievement Award for incoming PCC artists.
