The cast of A Christmas Carol
The stars of Lichfield Garrick’s forthcoming production of A Christmas Carol v isited Erasmus Darwin House to launch the new show. The cast, headed up by The Bill star Graham Cole who is playing Ebenezer Scrooge, gathered in full costume to get into the spirit of Christmas past. The Georgian town house was chosen as a fitting venue for the cast to meet for the first time to formally launch the new production. Graham said:
“The whole cast is really excited about the show. It has a great team behind it who has created a superb adaptation of the script. And, with brand new set and costume designs, a sparkling musical score, special effects, including real snow and skating on ice scenes, A Christmas Carol is sure to be a sensation and the perfect show to get audiences into the festive spirit.”
Designed especially for the Lichfield Garrick, by the team who brought the record-breaking Peter Pan to the Lichfield theatre last year, 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 on a journey of self-discovery with a lesson he will never forget. Adrian Jackson, Lichfield Garrick’s artistic and executive director, added:
“We’re all delighted to launch our Christmas production which has something for the whole family to enjoy. There will be puppets, spectacular scenery and costumes, a magical musical score, not to mention amazing skating scenes and a guaranteed snowfall during every performance!”
A Christmas Carol runs from December 1, 2011, until January 2, 2012, with a variety of school, matinee and evening performances.
