A CHRISTMAS CAROL (EMCC)

Join Scoot Theatre this festive season for Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas story, as you’ve never seen it before!  Three actor-musicians bound through this sixty-minute, light-hearted, family-friendly adaptation filled with music, song and dance to get you firmly in the Christmas ‘spirit’. 

Scoot Theatre’s brand new adaptation, written by Scoot founder Max Hutchinson, is a play-within-a-play:

“Legendary star of stage and screen (in his own opinion), Darren Broccolis, has not only written and directed his own version of A Christmas Carol but has also now cast (some may say typecast) himself as the main part - the infamously miserable old miser, Ebenezer Scrooge. Unfortunately, having spent almost the entire budget on a lavish, historically accurate Victorian costume for himself, he is forced to enlist the help of a very keen (and very inexpensive) young actor and his painfully shy niece (free) to play all the other parts. Will this ‘star vehicle’ prove to be the comeback Darren so desperately seeks? Will his co-stars push his patience to the brink? Or could Darren, rather like old Scrooge himself, learn the true meaning of Christmas and the value of community along the way?”

Staying [fairly] true to the original tale, Scoot’s mischievous take on this classic is the perfect way to kick off your festive period. With mulled wine and mince pies on offer and Christmas trees available to buy on site, why not make it a proper Christmas day out!?
