Lichfield Garrick is proud to announce this year’s festive production is a new adaptation of the classic Christmas tale, A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens.
Following the record breaking Peter Pan last year, A Christmas Carol will be brought to you by the same winning creative team. Scriptwriter and actor, Ian Adams, will be adapting the novel, and Lichfield Garrick’s very own Artistic and Executive Director, Adrian Jackson, will be arranging the MGM-style musical score.
The Christmas production will feature scenes on ice, live music and dance numbers, stunning new costumes and scenery, magical puppets, and snow that will fall onto the audience to create a truly festive feel.
A Christmas Carol tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a miserly old man who has lost his Christmas cheer. With the arrival of three ghosts, Scrooge is hurled into a journey of discovery with a lesson he will never forget. Will he change his ways? Come along and find out.
Adrian Jackson, Lichfield Garrick’s Artistic & Executive Director, said: “A Christmas Carol is the perfect musical to follow Peter Pan. The production will be specially adapted for the Garrick, with the magical qualities people have come to enjoy over the last five years. This is a feel-good show for all the family, who will be able to once again relax with two hours of fun and frolics in the company of whole host of colourful characters and puppets.”
A Christmas Carol will run from Thursday 1 December 2011 until Monday 2 January 2012, with a variety of schools, matinee and evening performances.
