Prepare to be visited by the ghosts of Christmases past, present and future this winter!
Join Proteus Theatre Company as they bring their fast-paced, funny and highly physical contemporary adaptation of Dickens best-loved story, A Christmas Carol to the stage.
Brought right up to date for modern family audiences, A Christmas Carol will delight you with plenty of laughs and high-jinks, a fabulous cast of actors and puppets and even a talking Christmas tree…
It’s Christmas Eve in the city, a rich man sits alone in his gilded tower and awaits the ghosts of his past and his future. In Scrooge’s office, somewhere in the City of London, the spirits are gathering in the darkening gloom to take this selfish, greedy man on a journey to his own salvation – but will he heed their lesson? He has just one night to change his ways or face a terrible fate….
A story of redemption and enlightenment, A Christmas Carol has much to say to audiences about our society, and the responsibilities we owe to others through our actions.
“All children and adults were kept totally engaged throughout the whole show, it was fantastic.”
Families Magazine on BRRR! 2016/17
“Keeping the traditional spirit of a classic tale, this is an adaptation which opens contemporary doors….a seasonal, smile-inducing winner” The Stage on Alice in Wonderland 2013/14
