A Christmas Carol
A World Premiere Adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
A fire is crackling, a hot chocolate brewing, and there is a ghost (or two) ready to tell you a story…
Ebenezer Scrooge is the miserable boss of Huntley and Palmers, Reading’s world famous biscuit company. With a little help from Christmas Past, Present and Future, will he be able to feel the festive joy this year? Step back in time with your favourite characters, and enjoy the whimsy and wonder of this yuletide production, drawn from the cobbled streets of Reading.
Written by Beth Flintoff, celebrated local writer, and directed by Reading Rep’s Artistic Director, Paul Stacey, A Christmas Carol is not to be missed.
A Christmas Carol is a family friendly show for the festive season. Some of the scenes may be a little scary for younger audiences, so it’s recommended for ages 7+. Families with younger children may enjoy the environment of the relaxed performance on Sunday 12 December.
If you require wheelchair-friendly or accessible tickets, there may be space for you even if the performance is sold out. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Reading Rep Theatre has a long history of working with schools throughout Reading, and we look forward to collaborating with you. We have set up an exclusive inbox for schools enquiries and bookings, so please email email@example.com with your query, and one of our ENGAGE team will follow up with you as soon as possible.
This production will be accompanied by a participation project called Dear Mr Scrooge, in which six primary schools throughout Reading will stage their own response to A Christmas Carol.
