A Christmas Carol
By Charles Dickens
Adapted by Anna Wheatley
Presented by Reading Between the Lines Theatre Company and South Street Arts Centre

At the annual Office Christmas Party, boss Evelyn remains in a perennially bad mood. Her employees are unbearably cheerful, and no quantity of yule log can shake her from her penny-pinching miserdom. To top it off, over-enthusiastic intern Crystal has adapted ‘A Christmas Carol’ into a play for the party entertainment, but forgotten to cast someone as Scrooge… Can acting out the tale of festive redemption finally bring out the Christmas spirit in the world’s grumpiest boss?

Award winning local theatre company, Reading Between the Lines, present their own unique version of one of the greatest Christmas stories ever told. With beautiful original music, mesmeric puppetry and RBL's trademark evocative style, this show will capture the imaginations of us all.

Suitable for ages 8+ as it's going to be a bit scary.
