A Victorian family prepares a paper theatre for a performance of A Christmas Carol.

The audience enters the imagination of one of the children and quickly, the cardboard stage transforms to reveal a magical world containing real dancers and stylised sets.

The classic tale unfolds in a rich tapestry of highly absorbing, theatrical drama featuring sumptuous visual effects inspired by the techniques of early cinema. In a daring twist of format, characters are portrayed by dancers and voiced by an eclectic cast of the world’s most recognisable actors including Carey Mulligan, Andy Serkis, Daniel Kaluuya and Martin Freeman.

Sister-brother directing duo Jacqui and David Morris are at the helm of this new retelling, offering an immersive, theatre-like experience for families.

After being unable to show this lovely release last year we are delighted to have it for our Christmas 2021 programme.
