Chickenshed's A Christmas Carol - a timeless tale in a different time

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

THIS Christmas, Chickenshed is presenting Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol at its Chase Side venue – from Wednesday, November 21, 2018 to Saturday, January 5, 2019.

Join Chickenshed for a magical and brilliantly uplifting retelling of the unforgettable story of Ebenezer Scrooge, that “squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous, old sinner”.

Follow his spooky encounters over the course of one incredible night and his journey ultimately to become the friendly, charitable man who “knew how to keep Christmas well”.

Charles Dickens’ classic story has arguably come to define Christmas in the 175 years since its publication, and there have been numerous memorable versions, both on stage and screen. Chickenshed has updated, renewed and refreshed this amazing and heart-warming tale for 2018 in an entirely brand new musical version, set in 1930s Britain.

With a cast of over 200 people on stage for each performance, original music, stunning sets and incredible design, it will be an unforgettable festive theatre experience for young and old!
