Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol adapted by John Mortimer
Scrooge had the blackest heart in London. He was a miser with a love for nothing except money. He was feared and despised everywhere he showed his scowling face. Until one Christmas Eve, Scrooge receives three spectral visitors; encounters the bleakest terror and the richest delight; and learns, at last, the true meaning of Christmas. For Scrooge, this will be no silent night.
This adaptation is filled with laughter, thrills, songs, and chills and should prove to be popular with all ages. Here is glimpse into the production:
