With the help of a large 60cm tall pop up book and lots of humbugs, this very entertaining version of the Dicken’s classic tale takes the audience back to Victorian England using mime, voice and a couple of suitcases loaded full of ghosts!
An old Dickensian narrator arrives to tell us the news, fresh from London town about the story he has heard of Scrooge. He opens his Big Book but as he does he starts transforming into the different characters! The audience watches as he turns into a grumpy Scrooge, a very goofy Marley and the Three Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Future. But the narrator spots that in the audience Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, Belle and Fezziwig seem to be hiding and children get to participate as the characters. A great introduction to Dickens.
This show is ideal for literacy topics to focus on or introduce Dickens and for historical topics as this performance explores Victorian England.
