A Christmas Carol (Rose Theatre, Kingston)

A Rose Original Production

From Morgan Lloyd Malcolm, writer of the Olivier Award-winning Emilia, comes a brand-new retelling of Charles Dickens’ timeless classic.

It’s a cold Christmas Eve on the snowy streets of Victorian London, and preparations for another meagre Christmas are well underway - but not for Ebenezer Scrooge. The cruellest, wealthiest woman in town; Scrooge hates charity, she hates carol singers, and most of all… she hates Christmas.

Join the children of the town and Charles Dickens, as they take Scrooge on a time-bending, enchanting journey of self-discovery to confront her past, present and future. Can Scrooge open her heart to undo years of misdeeds before it’s too late?

With all new songs by Eamonn O’Dwyer (Beauty and the Beast) and directed by Rosie Jones (Hansel & Gretel), step into this heart-warming tale of generosity and forgiveness, and experience the spirit of Christmas with the whole family.

This Rose Original Production features a wealth of local talent from the Rose Youth Theatre performing alongside a professional cast.

    We arrived at the rose theatre kingston to be told the performance is cancelled. I was told I should have received an email but that came through as I was stood at the door. I’m now told it will take 28 DAYS TO REFUND!!!! Not impressed
