This Christmas, following the critically acclaimed and record-breaking run of Grease, Curve Artistic Director Nikolai Foster, will direct a magical new version of Academy Award winning composer, Leslie Bricusse’s, festive family musical, Scrooge.

Based on one of the most powerful and enduring stories of all time, Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol, Scrooge brings the plight of the poor and their children during the boom decades of the industrial revolution, into startling focus.

“What made me write the show was Dickens’ genius for defining characters by their names- Cratchit, Fezziwig, Buzfuz, Pecksniff, Pumblecheek, Pickwick, Honeythunder – all perfectly crystallized in the one wonderful word Scrooge! It is nice to know that “Scrooge” continues to bring people together at Christmas. Long may he continue to do so.” – Leslie Bricusse

A timeless story of the perils of greed and the transformative power of charity over capitalism, Curve’s 25th anniversary production of this great British musical, features the songs I Hate Christmas, A Better Life and, Thank You Very Much.

Join Ebenezer, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and a host of Dickens’ other famous characters as Scrooge journeys with the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future in this spectacular retelling of the famous story.

Scrooge will also be presented by Michael Harrison and David Ian throughout the UK for Christmas seasons in 2018.

Further casting for both productions to be announced.
