A Christmas Carol
15 Aug, 2015
About the show:
Scrooge is a mean ol’ soul and he really, really hates Christmas. But after being visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, he grows to see the world in a new light … This is the classic Dickens tale brought to life in an adaptation by Karen-Louise Hebden that has been critically acclaimed as one being most faithful to the original Dickens story than any other stage adaptation. And ARENA’s production will not only sparkle with such, and entertain audiences of all ages, but present such a joyous show where the audience can sing along with the many Christmas carols woven throughout the performance!
