Written by Charles Dickens
Seven years after the death of his business partner Jacob Marley, elderly miser Ebenezer Scrooge works well into the night on Christmas Eve. What is Christmas but a display of spending and happiness? Bah! Humbug! However, on returning to his home, the grumpy old man finds himself visited by four ghosts. First, the ghost of Jacob Marley warns Scrooge to change his miserly ways; second, the ethereal Ghost of Christmas Past reminds Scrooge of his happy adolescence and the woman he was once to marry; third, the portly Ghost of Christmas Present shows Scrooge his family and employees as they celebrate Christmas without him; and finally, the terrifying Ghost of Christmas-Yet-To-Come says nothing and yet shows Scrooge all he needs – his grave. Returning to the present, Scrooge finds himself a changed man.
Featuring talented young Cumbrian actors, this show will make the perfect pre-Christmas family outing.
