Proteus Theatre Company presents: A Christmas Carol
"Marley was dead, to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that." Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol”
It's Christmas Eve in the city, a rich man sits alone in his gilded tower and awaits the ghosts of his past and his future. In Scrooge's office, high in a glass tower, somewhere in the City of London, the spirits are gathering in the darkening gloom to take this selfish, greedy man on a journey to his own salvation - but will he heed their lesson? He has just one night to change his ways or face a terrible fate....
Award winning Proteus bring Dickens' best loved story right up to date in this fast, funny, highly physical and contemporary adaptation. A story of redemption and enlightenment, A Christmas Carol has much to say to audiences about our society, and the responsibilities we owe to others through our actions.
With a fabulous cast of familiar Proteus faces; Danny Charles (Little Mermaid, Arabian Nights), Paul Huntley-Thomas (The Secret Garden, Rapunzel) and Ashley Christmas (Becoming Hattie, Little Red and the Wolves), plus puppets from acclaimed puppet maker Nick Ash, of Scratch Built Productions (Polka, The Globe, Little Angel) this is a Christmas Carol for our times.
For families with children aged 6+
“All children and adults were kept totally engaged throughout the whole show, it was fantastic.”
