The Final Episode of “A Christmas Carol” Approaches

If you’ve been following along with The Merry Beggars’ production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, then you know that we’re just two days from the final episode. The climactic conclusion of Scrooge’s story is rapidly approaching and he’s running out of time!

If you haven’t been following along, then what are you waiting for? It’s almost Christmas! As of right now, the show has garnered almost 600,000 downloads, over 40,000 subscribers, and more and more listeners are flocking to The Merry Beggars website to sign up and listen every day.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed this presentation. Very well done indeed!” said listener Tony. And from Melissa, “I’m loving it! Following along in my annotated book.” And Sandra can hardly wait for the new episode each day of Advent. “Always anxious to hear the next reading!”

Some listeners even take it upon themselves to make extra efforts to immerse themselves. Listener Tom traveled to Nubble Island to watch the decorated Cape Neddick lighthouse while he listened to Charles Dickens tell his tale. “Listened to tonight’s episode at Nubble Light.”

Director Peter Atkinson said, “It’s been amazing to hear from all of the families who have used our production to create a brand new Advent tradition. As we’ve seen downloads skyrocket into the hundreds of thousands, we’re all deeply grateful to God for the opportunity to make this type of impact. We have exciting productions planned for 2022 – adventures, mysteries, and live entertainment – so stay tuned!”

We couldn’t be happier that this production of a wonderful, heart-warming holiday classic has brought so much joy to so many people. As we close in on Christmas Day and approach the end of Advent, we encourage all who have not had the pleasure of hearing this audio Advent calendar to visit TheMerryBeggars.com/a-christmas-carol to sign up and listen. Registration is free!

But even as Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol nears its finale, that is not the end of The Merry Beggars. This production, as well as all of their past and future ones, will be available on The Merry Beggars platform forever free. Amongst other projects, The Merry Beggars are working to produce On the Night Train, a fictional, mystery reimagining of the first transcontinental railroad journey across America.
