Recurring Event Event Series: North Coast Arts Autumn/Winter Programme

Dicken’s ‘A Christmas Carol’

December 18, 2023 @ 19:30 - 21:30

Joy to all mankind? Bah!
Spend an evening in the company of a mean, tight-fisted, squeezing, grasping, clutching old miser. Bah! Watch horrified as Ebenezer Scrooge is haunted by four creepy ghosts (wooo-oooh) each one more terrifying than the last. Bah! Sob at the bedside of a tiny, malnourished child riven with rickets. Bah! Stagger through the dark, dirty, dismal streets of Victorian London. Bah!
This is Dickens’ original words with added silliness. Silliness? Bah! BAH!
Celebrate the festive season with a mesmerising one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ timeless, transformative story: A CHRISTMAS CAROL. Bah! Humbug!

Suitable for adults and older children (8yrs+)

Directed by Simon Harvey
Performed by David Mynne
Adapted by Andrew McPherson
Additional script by Simon Harvey and David Mynne

The show lasts 75 mins plus an interval.
It starts at 7.30pm but come early at 7pm for festive refreshments (donations only).
£2 from each full price will be donated to the Friends of Bude Sea Pool.

What a local Arts Centre said:

“A Christmas Carol was beautiful – apparently simple theatre with just one actor but you go home remembering a cast of dozens! He is a genius.”

What the audience said:

Just brilliant! We loved The Odyssey and this was even better. Thank you!
