A Christmas Carol

Christmas musical based on Dickens’ classic tale.

Musical in one act by Tobias Ahlsell, David Lundqvist and Anders Wängdahl based on Charles Dickens novella.

Performed in Swedish.

“A beautiful, engaging performance for children and adults.”Audience comment
Tilo Stengel

Bitter, mean, grumpy Scrooge hates everything and everyone – especially at Christmas. He can’t abide happy, generous, loving togetherness. Ugh! One night he’s visited by the ghost of his dead friend, Marley. Three ghosts then take Scrooge on a transformative journey through his life – past, present and future. Will the night’s experiences transform Scrooge and open his heart to love?

Directed by Erik Ståhlberg, we see Dickens’ classic tale transformed into a musical filled with humour, compassion and the odd spooky ghost. In this rendition, we’re treated to a delightful mix of a festive carnival atmosphere, Stevie Wonder, Silent Night, falling snow and flashing disco lights all within the context of Victorian England. Musical, opera, pop, rap and classic Christmas carols!
