Wed 13th Dec – Sun 17th Dec, 7.30pm & 2.30pm (Sat & Sun only)
Ebenezer Scrooge doesn’t like to celebrate Christmas. He prefers to spend time in his counting house, with his only real love; money. With some Christmas magic in the air, he is visited by the ghosts of his former business partners, The Marley sisters. They tell Scrooge that throughout Christmas Eve night, he will have visitations from the Ghost of Christmas Past, The Ghost of Christmas Present and The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. Will Scrooge change his miserly ways?
The show features beautiful musical selections like ‘Silent Night’ and ‘O Come Emanuel’, balanced with the lively ‘We Need A Little Christmas’ and yearly audience favourite ‘The Santa Claus Parade’.
While this newly written treatment must remain loyal to the classic book, it has been devised with a local family audience in mind. Unforgettable Christmas memories will be made with a show set to warm even the coldest of hearts.
