Audience number: approximately 150
Venue: ideally school hall with the audience on four sides

Our adaptation brings Dickens’ atmospheric Ghost Story of Christmas to life through the company’s characteristic cocktail of textual accuracy, fun, lively action, music and audience participation in order to educate, involve and inspire.  As our actors bring to life Scrooge, squeezing, wrenching, grasping, hard and sharp as flint, the audience will join him on the journey that he is forced to make through his past present and future until laughter and goodness replace the ice in his heart.

I think that being able to see what the characters are feeling and the emotions behind the lines is really helpful.  This experience has really helped my English and my drama skills as well as being very entertaining.”

The whole performance was really engaging and there was great use of space, props and sound.  Costumes were used fantastically to show the different characters. It was a really engaging performance.
