What's the story of A Christmas Carol?
It’s a cold Christmas Eve on the snowy streets of Victorian London, and preparations for another meagre Christmas are well underway – but not for Ebenezer Scrooge. The cruellest, wealthiest woman in town; Scrooge hates charity, she hates carol singers, and most of all… she hates Christmas.
Join the children of the town and Charles Dickens, as they take Scrooge on a time-bending, enchanting journey of self-discovery to confront her past, present and future. Can Scrooge open her heart to undo years of misdeeds before it’s too late?

Penny Layden will star as Ebenezer Scrooge, alongside Killian Macardle (as Bob Cratchit/Marley/Fezziwig), Natasha Magigi (as Mrs Cratchit/Pawnbroker), Elexi Walker (as Dickens) and Lizzie Winkler (as Elizabeth/Ghost of Christmas Present).
