A Christmas Carol

The genius of Dickens was played out in Bruce James Productions' A Christmas Carol.

This immortal short story was brought to life by a strong cast of professionals led by Paul Daniels in a magical portrayal of the story's central character, Ebenezer Scrooge.

This is no pantomime. No garishly bright costumes, no rhyming jokes, no dames and no ugly sisters. Simply a straight, Victorian play, with an atmosphere full of the spirit of Christmas.

You may also want to watch:

On Christmas Eve, old miser Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his dead business partner, Marley, who warns Scrooge that three spirits will visit him and that he must learn from them and change his miserly ways.

Highlights were supplied by Leigh Jones, as Marley, when he flew across the stage howling and shaking his chains; Tom Murphy, as Fezziwig and The Ghost of Christmas Present; Katy Jones, as Scrooge's frail and tender young sister, Fran; Paul Jorgen Jackson, as Tiny Tim, pronouncing the famous words “God Bless them every one”; and Daniels, as one of the most believable Scrooges I have had the pleasure to see.
