A Christmas Carol
5 December 2007 - 5 January 2008
by Charles Dickens
Adaptation by Susie McKenna
An extra special festive treat for all the family! A Christmas Carol, undoubtedly the greatest Christmas classic of them all, is here re-told on stage with magical special effects, amazing spectacle, wit and original music, not forgetting Dickens’ powerful language, humour and warmth.
Hard-hearted Ebenezer Scrooge discovers the true spirit of Christmas during one unforgettable night in Victorian London. Visited by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Christmas Yet To Come, Scrooge is taken on a fantastical journey during which he is forced to confront the choices he has made and the lives he has affected: his former business partner Marley, his put upon employee Bob Cratchit; Fred his ever cheerful nephew; childhood sweetheart Belle; Mr Fezziwig and of course the immortal character of Tiny Tim.
Given a final opportunity to atone for his mistakes, Scrooge turns his back on his old self and embraces life, kinship and the true spirit of Christmas.
Adapted by Susie McKenna with an original score by Steven Edis and directed by Simon Godwin this touching and poignant story is dramatically brought to the stage in a musical extravaganza which will thrill, inspire and amaze the child within us all.
