PARENTS in search of the perfect way to entertain the kids this Christmas need look no further. Talkwood Productions’ new musical version of Charles Dickens’ iconic classic A Christmas Carol, is touring major UK theatres in the run-up to Christmas this year, landing at The Spa Bridlington on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 November.
This tour, culminating in a three-week run at London’s Charing Cross Theatre over Christmas and New Year, follows a smaller, critically-acclaimed tour last year. Reviewers described the show variously as ‘the perfect tonic for a bleak winter night’, ‘instantly immersive’ and ‘a real sizzler of a show’.
A Christmas Carol, written and devised by four young theatre professionals who met at school, features a top-quality professional cast, including established West End performers, and two teams of children, who will alternate on tour.
Ebeneezer Scrooge is a mean and lonely man who prefers money to people. However, on Christmas Eve he is visited first by the spirit of Bob Marley, his former business partner and then by the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future who take him on an incredible journey using innovative special effects, lighting and the magic of Christmas to show him the error of his ways…
The shows take place on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 November. Tickets are available from the box office on (01262) 678258 or online at www.TheSpaBridlington.com
