A Christmas CarolA miserly old skinflint has his Christmas shaken up when he is visited by the ghost of his old business partner Jacob Marley and three of Marley’s spirit friends. As Ebeneezer Scrooge takes a trip through Christmases past, present and future his outlook on the festive season starts to change.

Horla’s group of actor/musicians uses mime, physical theatre and live music in their adaptation of Dickens’s Christmassy classic, staying true to the novel and focussing on the darker elements of the tale.

Although it is a show for all the family, this production is most suitable for ages 6 and over.
