The year’s holiday show features two segments from vintage radio programs and two classic Christmas tales. First Dick Tracy gets tangled up with a murder in Hollywood. Next take a trip to 79 Wistful Vista where Fibber McGee and Molly get involved in another nutty mix-up that’ll have you laughing. And you won’t want to miss out on two traditional tales sure to warm the heart, O. Henry’s The Gift of the Magi and Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The show includes holiday songs from the period and a singalong at the end. Get set for an evening of nostalgia and holiday cheer with the Final Act Ensemble!

The Final Act Ensemble is a troupe of performers ages 60 and older that present classic and original radio plays, including commercials and live and recorded sound effects. Programs are appropriate for multi-generational audiences.
