What The Dickens? Two Takes on A Christmas Carol

Our friends at Sean­chai Library are well-known for their annu­al Dick­ens Project where they bring Vic­to­ri­an author Charles Dick­ens and his best-known work A Christ­mas Car­ol to life in Sec­ond Life.

It’s cur­rent­ly a fal­low year for the Project, but one of its cen­tral ele­ments — The Big Read, where a team of read­ers reads the entire book aloud from cov­er to cov­er — con­tin­ues undeterred.

The Big Read is today, Sun­day, Decem­ber 19th at Noon Pacific/SLT
and it will take place at Sean­chai Library’s spe­cial­ly-craft­ed Sean­chai Win­ter Hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion in Nowhere­ville in Sec­ond Life.

For the 14th year, Sean­chai Library presents the full-meal-deal of A Christ­mas Car­ol — all the words from begin­ning to end (approx 3.5 hours). Fea­tur­ing: David Abbott, Cor­wyn Allen, Aoife Lore­field, Glo­ri­ana Maertens, Dub­h­na Rhi­adra, and Cale­do­nia Sky­tow­er, live.

And then, on Christ­mas Eve, Vir­tu­al Com­mu­ni­ty Radio presents…

A Christ­mas Car­ol - adapt­ed for radio from Dick­ens’ orig­i­nal pub­lic read­ing copy by Cale­do­nia Skytower

Fri­day, Decem­ber 24th at Noon and 4pm Pacif­ic / 8pm and Mid­night UK Time, Vir­tu­al Com­mu­ni­ty Radio presents the CEH Pro­duc­tions adap­ta­tion of Charles Dick­ens’ A Christ­mas Car­ol, the time­less tale of one man’s jour­ney from miser­ly indif­fer­ence to redemption.

Through the inter­ces­sion of the ghost of his sev­en-years-dead part­ner, Ebenez­er Scrooge jour­neys through time – and Christ­mas – with three Spir­its; observ­ing the caus­es, and effects, that his life choic­es have made – and will make, unless he changes his ways.

Fea­tur­ing Shan­don Lor­ing, Elrik Mer­lin, and Cale­do­nia Skytower.
