I just found out that I was cast in a radio play. Which is awesome. I’ve been wanting to explore voice acting for a while now, and this feels like jumping in with both feet.
Here’s the problem.
I was cast as The Ghost of Jacob Marley in Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”.
Which, to be honest, is not really a problem. I love the story and I love the role. And while I am an ‘evil militant atheist’, I have no problem acting in what is essentially a Christian morality play. I’ve played murderers and thieves, so why should this bother me?
And the theater company putting this on (which will be streaming our performance live on the internet, btw) is not Christian in nature.
But still…am I going to atheist hell for this, or what?
