Scrooge plays extra performances

Published 7 October 2009

The Arts theatre has added extra matinee performances to its forthcoming festive show A Christmas Carol, which plays from 11 November to 10 January.

The production, which is written and directed by Hackney Empire panto duo Susie McKenna and Steve Edis, features a cast led by Gareth Hale as Scrooge, along with West End regulars Simon Lipkin, Rebecca Thornhill and Michael Matus.

McKenna and Edis’s adaptation centres on Christmas-hating Sidney and his nephew Danny, who accidentally get locked in a theatre. The last thing they expect is to have to perform Charles Dickens’s classic A Christmas Carol on stage in front of an expectant audience, aided only by two out of work actors, the resident theatre cat and a mouse with stage fright.

The new matinee performances play on 9, 15, 16 December and 7 January at 14:30.
