Main Auditorium06/12/2019 - 14/12/2019We are proud to present this compelling adaptation of the world’s greatest Christmas story. Featuring all the characters we know and love (and love to hate), this faithful production captures the heart of Dickens’ beloved tale of redemption and compassion. On a bitter Christmas Eve, Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by four ghosts who transport him to the past, present and future, showing him what his miserly selfishness has led to and the bleak future he has built for himself. Can Ebenezer be saved before it’s too late? Like Dickens’ original novel ‘Christmas Carol’ is, at heart, a ghost story. So although suitable for most of the family, very young children may find some scenes scary. Come and have your heart warmed, leave rejoicing in the Christmas sprit and in the words of Tiny Tim; “God bless us, every one”!
