Proteus Theatre Company presents

A Christmas Carol

Touring nationally from December 2017 to January 2018

For families with children aged 6+

"Marley was dead, to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that." Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

A rich man sits alone in his gilded tower and awaits the ghosts of his past and his future. In Scrooge's office, somewhere in the City of London, the spirits are gathering in the darkening gloom to take this selfish, greedy man on a journey to his own salvation - but will he heed their lesson? He has just one night to change his ways or face a terrible fate.

“A heart-warming show recommended for the whole family” Families Online

Award-winning Proteus bring Dickens' best-loved story to the stage in this fast, funny, highly physical and contemporary adaptation. With puppets from acclaimed puppet maker Nick Ash of Scratch Built Productions (Polka, The Globe, Little Angel), a cast of fabulous actors, plenty of laughs, high-jinks and even a talking Christmas tree, this is A Christmas Carol for our times!


The show is touring to arts centres and rural community venues throughout the South of England from 2nd December 2017 until 6th January 2018. For more information see the full tour schedule here, and contact individual venues to purchase tickets.
