Lantern Light’s Ghostly Adaptation of A CHRISTMAS CAROL

December 17, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - December 18, 2021 @ 9:00 pm

A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol

Join Lantern Light this Christmas as we journey with Ebenezer Scrooge on a festive voyage of self knowledge, regret and redemption…
Going back to the tale’s roots as a classic Victorian ghost story, there will be scares, laughs and
heartbreaks along the way, in this new adaptation written by veteran playwright Sophie Flack and
directed by Artistic Associate Kerren Garner. Starring Seth Morgan as Ebenezer Scrooge, with an
ensemble cast.
A story which feels particularly relevant in our current time of austerity, widening wealth and social
divisions and rising homelessness. Do we perhaps also need to learn the lessons which Ebenezer
Scrooge does? To let go of our fear of the world and see each other “as fellow passengers to the
grave – not another race of creatures bound on other journeys”.
In addition to bringing a ghostly festive treat, Lantern Light are linking with local homeless charities
to collect funds and raise awareness.

“This fantastic performance really captures the spirit and morals of Dickens’ book. The values of
looking after the needy and vulnerable are just as relevant today as they were in 1843 and Lantern
Light’s production captivated our students’ hearts and minds. The production is true to the book and
makes clever use of an engaging narrator to thread the narrative together. The quality of the acting
was superb and simply but effectively put together. Thank you for putting on this show!”
Ruth Nilsson, Davison CE High School for Girls
