By Charles Dickens
Adapted and created by Shake & Stir Theatre Co.
This December, the award-winning stage spectacle – Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol – is returning to QPAC! Set to take over QPAC’s iconic Concert Hall in 2023, A Christmas Carol is a magical, grand-in-scale production brimful of song, humour, love, and lashings of festive joy – perfect for the entire family.
It’s Christmas Eve and Ebenezer Scrooge is counting down the seconds until the silliness of the season passes. Deeply entrenched in his own misery, Scrooge receives a visit from four ghosts who whisk him away on a journey through Christmases past, present and future. Here, he revisits fragments of his life and is faced with a number of choices. Redemption is his for the taking – but is Old Scrooge capable of changing his ways before it’s too late?
Complete with live music, yule-tide carolling, innovative video design, lavish costumes and, of course, snow, A Christmas Carol, is quite simply “the most uplifting theatrical experience you’ll have this year” (The Courier-Mail).
