Dickensian musical

PREPARATIONS are well under way for Alnwick Stage Musical Society’s Christmas show, Scrooge – The Musical.

It is the first of two productions to celebrate the Society’s 25th anniversary and is sure to be a festive treat for all the family.

Scrooge is a lively musical based on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and a 40-strong cast will bring this 19th century tale to life.

With its catchy tunes and eccentric characters – including the odd ghost or two – the show evokes all the excitement and magic of a Victorian Christmas.

Scrooge will be performed at Alnwick Playhouse from December 20 to 23, with shows starting at 7.30pm. There will also be a matinee on December 23 at 2pm. Tickets are £10 adult, £9 concessions and £6 for children and students, and are available from the Playhouse (01665 602234).
