A North Shore Christmas Karol, Part II

Deadbeats on the Air presents a radio theater event: “A North Shore Christmas Karol.” Based on Charles Dickens’, “A Christmas Carol,” this adaptation by Britt Aamodt has been modernized and set in Minnesota’s Arrowhead region.

Deadbeats on the Air is a radio theater group, founded at KFAI radio in 2008, by Britt Aamodt, Michael Fischbein and Mike Stapp. Their first production was the original feature “The Evil of Shady Lake” about the evils of toxic dumping and “those odd people next door.” In 2010, they adapted a popular Minneapolis comic strip, “Road Kill Bill,” created by artist Ken Avidor, for KFAI’s Wave Project.
