A Christmas Carol


A masterful musical stage adaptation of the classic Dickens tale in which Scrooge learns to celebrate the meaning of Christmas.


A Christmas Carol

by Charles Dickens

Adapted for the stage by Neil Duffield

Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year! Well, it is for everyone except the miserable Scrooge. He prefers to spend Christmas all alone in his large house, instead of celebrating with mistletoe and merriment. Bah, humbug! But one cold, dark Christmas Eve Scrooge is surprised by the ghost of Marley, his former business partner. Marley warns Scrooge that he will be called upon by three spirits – each will take him on a mysterious and magical journey to show him the error of his ways… Can Scrooge discover the true wonder and meaning of Christmas before it’s too late?
