Spring Dolly, Christmas Carol!

Published:

We are thrilled to announce that our second major production of 2019 will be ‘A CHRISTMAS CAROL ~ THE MUSICAL’.

Following on from ‘Hello, Dolly!’ at the Empire Theatre in May, we are excited to be returning to Liverpool’s Royal Court Theatre from 7th to 10th November with this joyfully festive show for all the family.

From the pen of the renowned Broadway composer Alan Menken, the show premiered in December 1994 at the Paramount Theatre, New York. During the following years, the lead role of Ebeneezer Scrooge has been played by actors including Tim Curry, Roger Daltrey and Jim Dale. The musical made its West End debut in 2016, and starred Robert Lindsay.

All the traditional elements to this story are here… from the miserly Scrooge who finally finds redemption, through the range of Christmas ghosts, a visit to the Fezziwigs’ festive Ball, to the Cratchitt family home, of course not forgetting poor Tiny Tim.

The New York Times’ theatre critic wrote, “Music, dance, colorful costumes and atmospheric scenery – all intended to make holiday theater-going a pleasant family experience – are marshaled here to satisfying effect.”

We at BOST aim to make our production an equally magical night out in Liverpool.
