World Premiere | Only in Brisbane
By Charles Dickens
Adapted and created by shake & stir theatre co
Experience a Christmas tradition cherished each year by families all over the world. This December, Charles Dickens’ classic tale of compassion, forgiveness and redemption is brought to magical life in a brand-new adaptation by award-winning theatre company, shake & stir.
It’s Christmas Eve and Ebenezer Scrooge is spending his night like every other – hunched over his coals, counting his fortune and cursing the happiness of others – until a few unexpected visitors come knocking on his door...
Starring acclaimed Brisbane actor Eugene Gilfedder as Scrooge, and featuring live musicians, yule-tide carolling, innovative video design, lavish costumes and, of course, snow, A Christmas Carol is a large-scale, visual feast to set your spirits soaring!
