By Charles Dickens
Adapted by Laura Turner


Chapterhouse Theatre Company is thrilled to be reviving its popular adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic festive tale, A Christmas Carol. Especially adapted for the stage by award-winning writer Laura Turner, A Christmas Carol will tour theatres and stately homes throughout the 2016 Christmas season from Saturday 19th November until Friday 23rd December.

On Christmas Eve, the most magical night of the year, the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is whisked away on a terrifying journey through the past and into the future, accompanied by three fearsome ghosts determined to make him realize the true meaning of Christmas. Charles Dickens’ classic ghost story is brought alive in this most traditional of productions, complete with beautiful period costume, song, dance and a magnificent, original musical score. Join critically acclaimed theatre company Chapterhouse as Scrooge’s frozen heart begins to melt and he finally embraces the festive spirit in this most Christmassy of Christmas tales.

contemporary feel with the author’s poetic text”

The Stage


Chapterhouse first toured A Christmas Carol over back to back years in 2010 and 2011. Now, the company best known for performing enchanting open-air theatre productions, will once again be returning to the indoor stage with a glorious production of this ghostly Dickensian classic.


A Christmas Carol provides the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of the Christmas rush. From Dickens’ irresistibly traditional world, audiences will be swept away on a magical journey with the miserly Scrooge as he is transformed into the epitome of the true Christmas spirit.
