Ebenezer Scrooge gets his ballet shoes on for A Christmas CarolBy Bev Woolford
November 09, 2012
THE ghosts of Christmas past, present and yet-to-come will be gliding across the stage in a new adaption of Charles Dickens’ classic story A Christmas Carol.
The festive tale, set among the cobbles of a dark and cold Victorian London, is told through the art of dance by innovative company Ballet Theatre UK.
The story follows miserly Scrooge who is forced to confront his fears when he is taken on a tour of his life by three ghosts after the death of his business partner Jacob Marley.
When he is shown the consequences of his mean behaviour Scrooge begins to see the error of his ways but can he change in time for Christmas day?
Theatre-goers are invited to join the cast on a magical journey through old Dickensian London with hand-crafted costumes and beautiful stage sets. The performance will appeal to young and old and is suitable for fans of dance and those experiencing ballet for the first time.
n Tickets are £18, £17 concessions, £16 members, £11 under 16s and £50 family.
