By Charles Dickens

Adapted and created by shake & stir theatre co

Following its sell-out world premiere in December 2018, shake & stir’s award-winning production of Charles Dickens’ classic tale of compassion and forgiveness returns this Christmas, and is set to become an annual tradition cherished by families for years to come.

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 music, 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!

★★★★★ “Phenomenal … I can honestly say this is the best show I’ve seen all year.” Broadway World
