Youthful twist to A Christmas Carol
December 11, 2012
Charles Dickens’ story of A Christmas Carol is brought to the stage by Surrey’s principal youth theatre in a sparkling adaptation by Shelia Laughton.
Join The Man In The Moon’s young company and Ebenezer Scrooge as he tries to discover the true meaning of Christmas at The Electric Theatre, Guildford from Thursday December 20 to Sunday December 23.
With a cast of more than 70 talented young people aged six to 18 from as far afield as Walton-on-Thames and Liphook, this youth theatre production is sure to charm audiences of all ages.
Ebenezer Scrooge hates Christmas. But one Christmas Eve, he is visited by the ghost of Jacob Marley and the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Will it be enough to make him change his miserly ways?
The cast has been rehearsing since September and is loving every minute of it.
Director Paul Rogers-Branch explained: “Christmas really isn’t Christmas until you’ve seen A Christmas Carol and everyone is enjoying every minute bringing all of the characters to life.
“We’re feeling really Christmassy already. We’re using puppets for some of the ghostly visitors to Scrooge and promise to make the play a lot of fun for everyone as well as a little bit – but not too – scary. Add to this some dramatic special effects to help us along. This really is a Christmas treat for everyone!”
