The Colonial Radio Theatre pulls out all the stops in this magnificent production of the Charles Dickens classic Christmas story! This full-cast dramatization features a powerful music score - from the magnificent, booming opening of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", to the frightening tones of "The Ghost of Christmas Future". This Colonial Radio Theatre production has been broadcast yearly since 2005 on Sirius/XM Radio.
The people of Earth are preparing for war a war that could potentially destroy the planet. Explorers are sent to Mars to find a new place for humans to colonize. Bradbury's Mars is a place of hope, dreams, and metaphor of crystal pillars and fossil seas where a fine dust settles on the great empty cities of a silently destroyed civilization. It is here the invaders have come to despoil and commercialize, to grow and to learn first a trickle, then a torrent, rushing from a world with no future toward a promise of tomorrow.
