Scrooge on the Radio
Center Stage at Southampton Cultural Center will present Joe Landry's A Christmas Carol, A Live Radio Play through Sunday in the Levitas Center for the Arts.
The beloved classic, A Christmas Carol, springs to life in Joe Landry's clever take on the epiphany of Ebenezer Scrooge. Produced and written as a live 1940s radio broadcast, Landry's adaptation gets to the heart of each story and aurally and visually recreates an era of hope and understanding. Assisted by sound effects and an actor's vocal prowess only, A Christmas Carol echoes simpler times and the power of story and storytelling.
A Christmas Carol, A Live Radio Play cast includes Daniel Becker, Christopher Disunno, Richard Gardini, Joey Giovingo, Barbara Jo Howard, Deb Rothaug, Ken Rowland, Josephine Wallace, and Gerri Wilson. Michael Disher directs.
Performance times are Thursday at 7 PM, Friday at 7 PM, Saturday at 2 PM, 5 PM, and 7 PM, and Sunday at 2 PM and 5 PM.

Sag Harbor Cinema Book
On December 16, 2016, the beloved Sag Harbor Cinema burned down. The 1936 Art Deco Theater may have been the latest in a long line of Sag Harbor movie houses, but it was not the first. In her new book Sag Harbor: 100 Years of Film in the Village, author and journalist Annette Hinkle pays tribute not only to the recently lost art-house cinema but also to all the movie houses that preceded it.
An homage to a century of celluloid on Main Street, the book traces film history from the era of the silents to the Sag Harbor Cinema's nearly four-decade tenure as the last independent, single-screen theater in the Hamptons.
Hinkle will discuss her book and sign copies at the East Hampton Library on Saturday from 3 to 4:30 PM. To register call 631-324-0222, ext. 3, or sign up online at www.eventbrite.com.
