Charles Dickens’ much-loved Christmas classic bursts on to The REP stage to provide the perfect festive treat!

On a cold, bleak, biting Christmas Eve seven years after the death of his business partner Jacob Marley, London’s meanest miser Ebenezer Scrooge is his usual grumpy old self.

Scrooge hates Christmas, calling it ‘humbug!’, his only act of seasonal generosity is to offer his poor overworked clerk Bob Cratchit, Christmas day off.

But as the clock strikes midnight his world will be turned upside down. Three ghosts are visiting him to offer visions of a happy past, a harsh present and a horrific future. Can they convince Scrooge to change his wicked ways in time for Christmas?

The REP’s brand-new production of a festive favourite provides a spooky and epic theatrical treat for all the family.

Reviews

“With a story so familiar, holding the audience’s attention is a tough task, but this production zips along at such a pace, and with so much passion and enthusiasm, that it is thoroughly engaging and entertaining throughout.”
