A Christmas Carol
By Charles Dickens

Auckland Theatre Company
Sky City Theatre
This Christmas join Scrooge, Bob Crachit, Tiny Tim and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future in ATC's brilliantly funny re-telling of Charles Dicken's classic tale.
Adapted by New Zealand satirist and comedy writer, Dave Armstrong (TV's Spin Doctors, Skitz, Semisi Family and Niu Sila), A CHRISTMAS CAROL moves effortlessly back and forth between a picture-postcard Victorian Christmas and the true New Zealand flavour of the Crachit family's Christmas barbeque.
Mark Hadlow (Wind in the Willows, Noises Off and TV's Willy Nilly) heads a star-studded cast of popular stage and TV actors as the irritable money grubbing old humbug Ebenezer Scrooge - complete with laptop and free market values!
With dazzling stage effects and Christmas songs, both classic and popular, A CHRISTMAS CAROL will have adults in stitches and children looking at the on-stage spectacle in wonderment.
This is Christmas as it should be!
