Dickens' A Christmas Carol comes to the stage in Peterborough
There'll be 'no humbugs' this Christmas, says the team at the Lamphouse Theatre - because they are putting on a live show with COVID-19 precautions in place.
A 'fun-filled' one-man version of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, will be presented in the Key Theatre studio from December 15 until 24, with socially distanced seating.
The Lamphouse Theatre's one-man show will see a single actor portray all the famous characters in A Christmas Carol, 'while playing, singing and cracking festive jokes at the same time!'
From Scrooge to Tiny Tim, with all the ghosts in between, the team says the audience can expect 'magic, puppetry, live music and side splitting comedy in this spectacular live show.'
Producer Becky Owen-Fisher says: “We’re incredibly excited to be performing live on stage this Christmas. Our one-man Christmas Carol will be a wonderfully crazy, energetic and entertaining way to kick off Christmas.
"We have two different actors performing on alternate nights, so you can even choose your Scrooge.
"The Key Theatre is working incredibly hard to ensure the safety and peace of mind of audiences. Auditoriums will be deep cleaned and seating will be socially distanced. There will be no interval to prevent crowding.
We’re also going to be making filmed versions of the show available online for anyone that would rather stay at home, or for those who want to see the alternative Scrooge!”
The show is marketed as ' a raucous, fun-filled, family adventure, suitable for ages 8 plus.'
Tickets can be purchased now online at vivacity.org or call the Key Theatre box office on 01733 207239.
Performances are at various times from December 15-24, including matinee and evening shows.
