Background


Charles Dickens' classic story has arguably come to define Christmas in the 175 years since its publication, and there have been numerous memorable versions, both on stage and screen.


Chickenshed has updated, renewed and refreshed this amazing and heart-warming tale for 2018 in an entirely brand new musical version, set in 1930s Britain.


With a cast of over 200 hundred people on stage for each performance, original music, stunning sets and incredible design, we guarantee an absolutely unforgettable festive theatre experience for young and old!


The cast for each performance is drawn from an ensemble of 800 performers split over 4 different rota groups.


Synopsis


"You there!" he shouted to a boy on the street.


"What day is this?"


The boy gave Scrooge a puzzled look.


"It's Christmas, sir. Christmas morning!"


Join Chickenshed for a magical and brilliantly uplifting retelling of the unforgettable story of Ebenezer Scrooge, that "squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous, old sinner".


Follow his spooky encounters over the course of one incredible night, and his journey ultimately to become the friendly, charitable man who "knew how to keep Christmas well".
