The Ghost of Ebenezer Scrooge, Thorpe Hesley

Wentworth and Thorpe Hesley Youth Theatre performing this musical, which is based on Charles Dickens’ classic tale A Christmas Carol.

The action is brought forward to present day, where a ruthless landowner, Rose, controls the lives of all her tenants in the village and has banned the celebration of Christmas.

When four advernturous children find a secret passage into the attic of her mansion, they accidentally release the ghost of Ebenezer Scrooge.

The spirit warns Rose to expect three visits from the spirits of Christmas past, present and future.

The audience are then taken into Rose’s past to discover the true reason for her loathing of Christmas.

Packed full of great songs, dramatic action and comedy, this show is a real treat for all the family, say the theatre group.

Presented by local youngsters between the ages of eight and 19, 
this production continues Wentworth and Thorpe Hesley Youth Theatre’s tradition of offering original drama in a community setting.
