A Christmas Carol


Bah Humbug! Christmas is coming to Shakespeare North Playhouse this winter with Dickens' beloved classic A Christmas Carol to be staged this festive season. A fast, furious and whacky musical retelling of the original text but with a distinctly Northern feel.

Known as the meanest man in Prescot, Ebeneezer Scrooge would cancel Christmas if he could! That is until one fateful night he is given the fright of his life, as three mysterious visitors make him see that there is more to life than counting out his pennies. What ensues is a wild and bonkers romp filled with musical nonsense and festive whimsy- there's even a time worm thrown in for good measure! Experience a tale of friendship, compassion and humanity that's jam packed with local references. Can the meanest man in Prescot change his ways before it's too late? Or will he always be a 'hard-faced bat, selfish, scrimpy and stingy?'
