In a joint comment, Curve Chief Executive Chris Stafford and Artistic Director Nikolai Foster said “We are honoured to be working with a first rate company to bring Leslie Bricusse’s brilliant musical adaptation of this timeless story to life. We are thrilled the incomparable Jasper Britton will lead this astonishing company, many returning to Curve having worked with us before. Audiences are in for a festive treat like no other, warming hearts and bringing joy.”
Based on Charles Dickens’ much-loved A Christmas Carol, Scrooge is the perfect festive family treat and features the Oscar nominated score and songs from the 1970 film of the same name.
Will the miserable Scrooge cancel Christmas? Bah Humbug! Or can he learn the error of his ways and let a little festive cheer shine in his otherwise dreary world?
Audiences can meet the miserly Ebenezer, the Cratchitt family and a whole host of Dickens’ most famous characters in this heart-warming story, with a score including the Oscar-nominated hit Thank You Very Much, I Hate Christmas, Happiness and many more.
