A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an old man who transforms his miserly ways after four ghostly visits one Christmas Eve.Scrooge is visited by a series of ghosts, starting with his old business partner, Jacob Marley. The three spirits which follow, the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet to Come, show Scrooge how his mean behaviour has affected those around him. At the end of the story he is relieved to discover that there is still time for him to change and we see him transformed into a generous and kind-hearted human being. Southend Drama Society’s production will be as traditional as possible, with Dickensian dress and scenery, to immerse the audience in the atmosphere of this much loved seasonal tale.
Please note that prices are inclusive of your fee and that, as indicated above, we plan to run Tuesday to Saturday with an audience.
Because A Christmas Carol is on the school syllabus, we are interested in encouraging groups of students and their teachers to attend. To this end, we are offering a free ticket with every 10 sold on a block booking.
