Rehearsals for Scrooge the Pantomime are well underway and it's already making us laugh! We are having lots of fun but working hard to produce another fantastic pantomime. Our stage crew are also hard at work and the set is beginning to look really exciting. It is one of our most ambitious sets yet.

Scrooge the Pantomime is our twist on Charles Dickens' classic Christmas story, with all the usual pantomime treats- a gorgeous dame, a villain you can hiss at and lots of opportunities to shout: Oh no it isn't! Add in great scenery, fabulous lighting effects and plenty of laughter, and you have the ingredients for a great night out in our newly refurbished auditorium.

Did  you  know ?
Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol in just six weeks. It was published on 19th December 1843 and by Christmas Eve, all 6,000 copies of the initial print run had sold out. The book has never been out of print since.

It was first adapted for the stage within weeks of publication. By the end of February 1844, eight rival theatrical productions were playing in London.

The first screen adaptation was a 6-minute silent film named Scrooge, or Marley’s Ghost made in 1901. The story has since been filmed over 200 times.
