This much-loved and endearing musical tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, who hates Christmas. However, after being visited by three spirits – Christmas past, present and future – all on Christmas Eve, Scrooge’s outlook on life is transformed!
In a show packed with toe-tapping songs such asThank You Very Much, December the 25th and I Like Life, Scrooge is taken on a journey through his life, revisiting past joys, meeting his childhood sweetheart and joining friends and family at their Christmas celebrations. He also has a stark warning of how he will end up if he continues his ways and the consequences of his miserly actions! This makes Scrooge realise that he must change until finally he discovers the true meaning of Christmas!
