A Christmas Carol is probably Charles Dickens’ most accessible novel and appeals to both adults and children. This musical is faithful to the spirit and detail of the original story and retains all the charm and vitality.
It was first performed at The Bryanston Arts Centre and The Gardner Arts Centre from November 1993 to January 1994 and ran for 52 performances. The production was staged by a professional company of consisting of 14 adults and 6 children, but the show has plenty of big street scenes and chorus numbers and should appeal to companies wishing to involve a much larger cast. With 30 individual speaking parts, it provides exciting opportunities for all the company.

Number of individual speaking parts: 30
Suitable for: Professional Companies; Amateur Companies; Schools
Running time: Approx. 1 hour 45 minutes
A backing CD of this show is available.
