WRSU-FM will air a live radio performance of "A Christmas Carol" on Saturday, including sound effects produced on stage. Listeners can tune in online or at 88.7 FM on their radios.

Rutgers Radio will present a live radio play performance of "A Christmas Carol," which will feature rare traditions from the “Golden Age," including live sound effects produced onstage.

This event is on Saturday night at 9 p.m., in Room 411 AB&C of the College Avenue Student Center on the College Avenue campus.

"A Christmas Carol," the play based on Charles Dickens's 1843 novel, will be performed by Atomic Radio Theater, the radio production team at Rutgers Radio WRSU-FM.

Atomic Radio Theater has broadcast original theatrical productions over Rutgers Radio for seven years, according to its Facebook page.

Their previous works include their originals, like Quantum X and Dan Gerous, Private Dick, a three-part series, all of which were broadcast and webcast live on the radio station and website.

In Atomic Radio Theater’s holiday production, Gregory Newton will star as protagonist Ebenezer Scrooge, a bitter miser who becomes kinder after a visit from the son of his business partner and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come.

Rutgers Radio’s production of "A Christmas Carol" has long been an annual tradition, with this week’s production being its seventh.

Admission will be free and open to the public, with free event parking available.

While seating for the event will be limited, the production will be broadcast and webcast live over Rutgers Radio, 88.7 WRSU-FM New Brunswick and at wrsu.org.
