Chapterhouse House Theatre company bring Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol to Newark Palace Theatre and Southwell Minster
An acclaimed outdoor theatre company is heading inside this winter to bring another classic tale to life.
Chapterhouse Theatre Company – which brings open-air productions to venues across the region during summer – is heading to Newark and Southwell over the coming weeks with A Christmas Carol.
It will perform the Dickens’ timeless tale of hope and redemption, at Newark Palace Theatre tomorrow (November 17) and then again at Southwell Minster on Sunday, December 2.
It has been adapted for stage by Laura Turner.
A Christmas Carol follows the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge as he embarks upon a journey through his past, present, and future, learning along the way to appreciate the true meaning of Christmas.
Despite encouragement from his clerk Bob Cratchit and nephew Fred, Scrooge remains indifferent to the joy and good will of the season.
On Christmas Eve, Scrooge encounters the ghost of his old business partner Jacob Marley, who warns Scrooge that he will be visited by three more spectres.
What follows is a magical and touching tale about the power of redemption.
With dazzling musical sequences and authentic period costuming, this production promises to be the perfect accompaniment to the festive season.
Join family and friends at the most magical time of the year and be swept back in time nearly two centuries to the world of Scrooge’s London.
