Based on the story by CHARLES DICKENS
For many around the world, Christmas isn’t Christmas without revisiting the well-loved tale of the penny-pinching miser, Ebenezer Scrooge and the awakening of his long forgotten festive spirit. Written in the latter months of 1843, over a period of just a few weeks Charles Dickens, created one of his most affecting and universal novels, ‘A Christmas Carol’.
In this fresh, fun and lively adaptation of A Christmas Carol, you’ll meet Mr. Bentley, learn about the letters Scrooge wrote to his sister Fan, and find out who Mr. Newbury is. You’ll still find all the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future along with Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit, the Ghost of Jacob Marley, Old Fezziwig, Scrooge’s nephew Fred, and the love of Scrooge’s life, Belle. There are some new scary bits, a few good laughs, a tender moment or two, and some surprises! It’s a fresh take on an old tale sure to thrill young and old alike.
Drawing strongly on the theme of time, this adaptation shows that we must use our time wisely and understand that we have but a moment to make the right choices. With time ticking onward, Scrooge must make his life mean something before it is too late. When the bell tolls for Christmas Day, will he have the strength to change the man he has become over so many wasted years?
Bringing the atmosphere of Victorian Christmas traditions to the stage, this vibrant and joyous production takes you on a journey of discovery, a journey where the true meaning of Christmas is found. With a cavalcade of colorful Dickensian characters and a ghostly quartet of guardians, ‘A Christmas Carol’ is the perfect way to get you into the Christmas spirit!
