A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens to be performed at Stamford Arts Centre




It's worth a trip over to Stamford to see a charming performance of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, using the same script he performed from more than 150 years ago.

The play, by the European Arts Company, comes to the Stamford Arts Centre in St Mary's Street, on Tuesday, December 10, and Wednesday, 11.

It's part of a UK tour to Dickens’ favourite places and will also raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Working with Dickens' script, actor John O'Connor plays more than 20 characters, skilfully drawing the audience into the Victorian ghost story about the power of compassion and generosity to transform lives.

Deftly being taken from Dickens' own warm study, to Scrooge's freezing house, and the Cratchits' welcoming dinner table, the festive production promises to 'stir even the most miserly of hearts.'

The sets by Tom Parish are based on a combination of Dickens' travelling cases and the warmth of his London sitting room, said to lend real intimacy to the poignant production.
