A Christmas Carol rehearsals in full swing!

The greatest Christmas classic of them all is being brought to life in spectacular fashion by the New Vic this festive season.

Rehearsals for the theatre-in-the-round’s production of A Christmas Carol, which runs from Saturday 17 November to Saturday 19 January, are in full swing.

Adapted and directed by New Vic Artistic Director, Theresa Heskins, the production is being brought to the stage by the same creative team behind the theatre’s Alice in Wonderland last year, a show which has recently been nominated for Best Show for Children and Young People in the Theatre Awards UK.

Heskins said: “The Christmas production is my favourite of the year.  It offers something for everyone, and audiences young and old consistently go away dazzled by the scale and imagination of the show – this year is no different!”

In the New Vic’s house style, A Christmas Carol will invite actors and audience members to put their imaginations centre stage and will harness physical theatre techniques to stage the impossible.

A top notch cast features Paul Greenwood (Rosie, ITV, Comedy of Errors, RSC) as hard-hearted Ebenezer Scrooge, while Hannah Edwards, who wowed the crowds as Alice in the New Vic’s Alice in Wonderland, takes on the role of the Ghost of Christmas Past.

The rest of the cast is made up of Emily Butterfield, Matt Connor, Mark Donald, Bryn Holding, Antony Jardine, Alicia Marsden, Oliver Mawdsley, Loren O’Dair, Naomi Lee Schulke and David Streames.

Joining the professionals on stage is a talented team of 24 budding performers who beat off competition from dozens of hopefuls to win places in the New Vic’s biggest show of the year.

Tickets for A Christmas Carol, priced from £14 to £21(concessions available), are available by telephoning the Box Office on 01782 717962 or online.
