With a large cast, sophisticated technical support, wonderful singing and superb costumes, "A Christmas Carol" is a great way for you, your family and friends to start the Christmas season.
Written in 1843, “A Christmas Carol” was one of Dickens’ earlier stories, the classic that has rarely been out of print since.
The story is told of Ebenezer Scrooge, a sad and grumpy miser who undergoes a transformation through visitations of the ghosts of Marley and Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come, who show him the misery he has contributed to and the loneliness and unhappiness he is headed for unless he changes.
This production portrays with both humour and pathos the harsh social conditions that families in the early 19th century had to endure. Yet they looked forward to Christmas with excitement, a happy celebration that they were determined their poverty and hardship would not dull.
