... Gribble was a storyteller, a virtuoso storyteller. A CHRISTMAS CAROL has lots of emotions – joy, fright, anger, warmth, suspense and, more – and Gribble captured them all.

Gribble deftly works the many tables, racks and machines of noisemaking, which also provides the audience with an education of the ingenuity and simplicity of foley sound effects artists.

It’s Christmas Eve, 1947, and with the actors snowed in and unable to make it to the studios of WXMS for the live radio performance of A Christmas Carol, the sound effects man decides to take the audience through the classic tale himself. A rollicking, creative adaptation of Dickens’ classic work that is sure to warm the hearts of even the chilliest audience members. This one-man tour de force features WT favorite Aral Gribble as our endearing and engaging storyteller.
