A Christmas Carol

Dec 21 - Dec 23 2017

The Long Beach Shakespeare Company will present the classic 1939 radio edition of A Christmas Carol. It was originally produced by Orson Welles for his Campbell's Playhouse (which is what The Mercury Theatre on the Radio became after The War of the Worlds broadcast. The Mercury Theatre saved their weekly series from cancellation with the success of that broadcast, and won a sponsor, Campbell's Soup). This Christmas broadcast was an annual tradition, first performed on Christmas Eve, 1939, starring Lionel Barrymore as Scrooge.

Sherlock Holmes & The Scandal
in Bohemia

Jan 12 - Jan 21 2018

Celebrate Sherlock Holmes’ birthday month of January with our own Old-Time-Radio adaptation of the Great Detective’s investigation of “The Scandal in Bohemia,” in which Holmes meets “the Woman,” opera star Irene Adler.

King John

Feb 23 - Mar 17 2018

John, King of England, was the son of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. He ruled in troubled times when England and France battled for supremacy. Shakespeare’s play was one of his most popular during Victorian times, partly because of its spectacle and pageantry. Today, however, it’s a rarely performed gem, and LBSC is pleased to present it to see what you, our audience, think of it. In 1942, George Orwell described it: “With its intrigues and doublecrossings, non-aggression pacts, people changing sides in the middle of a battle, and what-not, it seemed to me extraordinarily up to date.”
