Live on stage and in person, television favourites COLIN BAKER (Doctor Who, the Brothers, I’m A Celebrity) as Ebenezer Scrooge and PETER PURVES (Blue Peter, The Office, Doctor Who) as Charles Dickens lead the cast in a new adaptation of Charles Dickens’ Christmas classic.

“He was a tight-fisted hand at the grindstone, Scrooge – a squeezing, grasping, covetous, old sinner!”

On Christmas Eve, Ebenezer Scrooge is warned by the ghost of his late partner, Jacob Marley, that he will be visited by three Spirits – Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet To Come. Together they whisk Scrooge to the past and his happy boyhood Christmastimes, to the present to meet Tiny Tim at Bob Cratchit’s Christmas feast, and finally to the future and Scrooge’s own miserable grave – all attempting to show him the error of his ways. But will Scrooge wake on Christmas morning a changed man?

Presented by the Crime And Comedy Theatre Company as a radio-play-live-on-stage, our setting is a radio studio, our actors ready as if for a radio broadcast, and our sound effects created live, all combining to transport the audience to Victorian London, for this 180th anniversary production of Dickens’ timeless tale of charity, forgiveness and redemption at Christmas.

Reviews of our latest production, “The Hound Of The Baskervilles”:
