Charles Dickens’ classic holiday tale about the joy of community triumphing over selfishness, presented in this fresh musical adaptation by Sgouros & Bell. Follow Ebenezer Scrooge on his emotional journey, as he is visited by four forewarning ghosts. Will Scrooge catch the holiday spirit and save himself in the process? Find out by joining us for this special holiday show with a story so warm it will melt the cold heart of even the grumpiest Scrooge!

Families can attend a free pre-show workshop one hour before the Sunday 11am performances. Meet and interact with members of the cast and creative team to see first-hand how we bring Dickens’ novel to life onstage. Then children are invited up onto the stage to create and art project that they can keep as a souvenir or give away as a holiday gift.
