AUTUMN 21
A CHRISTMAS CAROL
IMG_2879.JPG

It’s a cold, bleak, biting Christmas Eve and old miser Scrooge is not full of the Christmas spirit.  In fact he hates Christmas…(“humbug!” he calls it.)  But on returning home he suddenly finds himself visited by four ghostly apparitions come to teach him a lesson; his old partner Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet To Come. 

 

But as Christmas day dawns are these apparitions and their dire warnings enough to make Scrooge see the error of his ways?

 

Michael Whitmore's faithful new adaptation is taken exclusively from the original text, capturing the spirit and style of this Dickens classic whilst reinforcing the key quotations from the book.
