A Christmas Carol

The Albany Theatre presents A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
Directed by Kevin Shaw

The perfect family-friendly alternative to a traditional panto.

Delve into Charles Dickens’ timeless Christmas classic this Winter as it jumps from page to stage brimming with heart-warming merriment and Victorian charm.

It’s Christmas Eve and Ebenezer Scrooge has not an ounce of festive cheer. When the clock strikes midnight, Scrooge is visited by four ghostly spirits who each whisk him away on a magical journey through his past, present and future hoping to reveal the error of his cold-heart and change his life forever.

The Albany Theatre brings this much-loved tale vividly to life with breath-taking sets, spellbinding costumes, heaps of Christmas spirit and a sprinkle of spooky goings on.

Join Scrooge, Jacob Marley, Mr and Mrs Cratchit, Tiny Tim, Mr Fezziwig, and all of Dickens’ treasured characters on the snowy streets of Victorian Coventry to spread the true meaning of Yuletide this festive season.
