A Christmas Carol returns to Exmouth
PUBLISHED: 18:30 21 October 2017
A Christmas Carol – presented by Lincoln’s Chapterhouse Theatre Company – is returning to the Exmouth Pavilion on Sunday, December 10.
First seen at the seafront venue last year, the production is back for a ‘new season of ghostly Dickensian entertainment, providing the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of the Christmas rush’.
From Dickens’ irresistibly traditional world, audiences will be swept away on a magical journey with the miserly Scrooge as he is transformed into the epitome of the true Christmas spirit.
On Christmas Eve, the most magical night of the year, the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is whisked away on a terrifying journey through the past and into the future, accompanied by three fearsome ghosts, determined to make him realise the true meaning of Christmas.
Dickens’s classic ghost story is brought alive in this most traditional of productions, complete with period costume, song, dance and a magnificent musical score. Scrooge’s frozen heart begins to melt and he finally embraces the festive spirit in this most Christmassy of Christmas tales.
Richard Main, Chapterhouse Theatre’s artistic director, said: “Christmas is the most magical time of the year, so I am thrilled that we get to join our audiences in celebrating the season.”
The show has been adapted for the stage by writer Laura Turner. “A Christmas Carol is special to a lot of people in the way it captures the true heart of Christmas: the spirit of forgiveness, generosity and love,” she said. “I hope this adaptation reflects everything that the story has come to mean.”
Last year’s Exmouth Pavilion show was praised by Journal reviewer Delia Pemberton.
“The sensitive adaptation by Laura Turner retained the spirit of the original,” she said. With ‘scary ghosts, atmospheric bell ringing and delicate renditions of traditional songs, this Christmas Carol delivered a true festive treat.”
A Christmas Carol is at the Exmouth Pavilion at 7.30pm on Sunday, December 10. Standard tickets are £15 (adult) and £10.50 (child). Raised seats are £17 (adult) and £10.50 (child). Call 01395 222477 or visit www.ledleisure.co.uk/exmouth-pavilion
