'Marley was dead to begin with....'
Ebeneezer Scrooge is a seemingly heartless money lender who hates Christmas and disparages all that love it, especially his long-suffering clerk Bob Crachitt. 'Bah, humbug!' is his usual response to any Yuletide greeting. However, on Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his former business partner, Jacob Marley, who warns him that he will have three supernatural visitors who will try and help him see the error of his ways. Is it all 'Humbug!' or can the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future save Scrooge's soul?
Come to the beautiful Albany Theatre this December and January and enjoy A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens' famous heart-warming Victorian tale. Meet Scrooge, Bob, Tiny Tim and a host of extraordinary characters. This charming show features professional and local performers, a choir, traditional carols and is suitable for all the family.
