GHS Production Of “A Christmas Carol” On WGEL


The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on just about every facet of daily life. While some events have had to be cancelled, many have adapted to a new way of doing things. The later was the approach of Greenville High School students as they began to work on a musical production for this year.

GHS Musical Director Shawn Cox told WGEL he adapted the book version of “A Christmas Carol” into a radio show. Students have been working with Gary Erickson in the studio at Greenville University. They finished up in early November and have been editing the program since then.
