Charles Dickens’ classic in a brand new adaptation! Ebenezer Scrooge is a grumpy fellow who has lost his way. He has no friends, shuns his family and only cares for money. But with the help of a spectral visit from his deceased friend Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, it may not be too late! Can he change his ways? Christmas is a time of hope and it is never too late to make amends and let love into your heart! Join us on this wonderful adventure through the past, present and future!

Charles Dickens’ timeless classic is vividly brought to life with puppets, music and a festive magic all of its own. No matter what happens throughout the year, Christmas is always a time of hope and joy!
