Charles Dickens’ classic story of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is being adapted for the stage once more in a new production of the legendary A Christmas Carol
Jim Broadbent to star as Scrooge at the Noel Coward Theatre
Since it was first published in 1843, Dickens’ novella about a bitter miser’s cynical view of Christmas has reached out to generation after generation, becoming one of the best-loved and timeless stories about Christmas.
You’ll be able to catch the new theatrical production of A Christmas Carol at the Noel Coward Theatre this Christmas.
Oscar-winning Jim Broadbent will be returning to the stage once more, playing the lead role of the miserable Ebenezer Scrooge.
The production is directed by Phelim McDermott, co-founder of the Improbable Theatre Company and is produced by Sonia Friedman Productions.
Written at a time when Britain was exploring old festive traditions and new ones, when carol singing took a new lease of life, A Christmas Carol is centred on Scrooge’s parsimonious views about Christmas. But when the old miser is visited by the ghost of his former business partner and later the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, his outlook on Christmas and life in general is transformed forever.
The new production of this much-loved family tale is playing at the Noel Coward Theatre from Monday 30 November 2015 and will run until Saturday 30 January 2016.
