Library for the Blind patrons may download free radio production of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”

Oklahoma Library for the Blind patrons are invited to download an Oklahoma-produced radio adaptation of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” at no charge, thanks to the generosity of Rose State College theater student William Cathey, who produced the play in cooperation with Living Catholic Radio Theatre.

Mr. Cathey, who fondly remembers the Library’s mission from his work as a volunteer, has renamed his production “A Christmas Carol in Prose” and engaged community leaders, radio personalities and Rose State theater faculty and drama club members to bring the holiday classic to life.

The one-hour production, which was recorded and edited by KOMA radio personality and sound engineer Kent Jones, will be broadcast through December 24 on Oklahoma Catholic Broadcasting Network stations.

In addition to entertaining families during the holiday season, Bill Cathey’s dream is to benefit programs like the Oklahoma Library for the Blind, which provides free audio books to Oklahomans who are visually impaired or unable to use standard print due to another disability.

Oklahoma Library for the Blind patrons may download the production free of charge at this "A Christmas Carol" link. All others are requested to purchase a CD or digital download for $20 at https://www.livingcatholicproductions.com/store.
