by Charles Dickens

Saturday 10th December 2016 to Saturday 17th December 2016 (no Sunday show).

This is a magical rendition of the famous Christmas story told in the very words written by Charles Dickens himself and set in the 1830's. The ensemble cast play an array of characters as well as providing sound effects and acting as a “Greek Chorus” to comment on the action and to move the story along. One of the cast is chosen to play Ebenezer Scrooge whilst the others swiftly change roles and often gender!

The miser Scrooge has to come to terms with his past and present to confront the choices he has to make for his future. This version is skilfully adapted and presented in the traditional form but with many surprises.

With acapella singing, using Victorian carols often with adapted words, this is a charming Christmas tale suitable for all the family. A wonderful way to start the Christmas season.
