A CHRISTMAS CAROL The Musical Music by Alan Menken Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens Book by Mike Ockrent & Lynn Ahrens Based on the story by Charles Dickens Original choreography by Susan Stroman Originally directed by Mike Ockrent Originally presented by Radio City Entertainment at the Theater at Madison Garden This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd. on behalf of Music Theatre International of New York
THE SHOW, based on Charles Dickens’ classic Victorian tale, features miserable miser SCROOGE, his hard-up employee BOB CRATCHIT, sickly TINY TIM, scary GHOSTS, street URCHINS and many other colourful characters. This new show with wonderful music should not be confused with other musicals on the same theme. We were only the second Scottish company to present it. To do it justice, we assembled a stellar production team, over 60 performers on stage, including child principals and two companies of child performers for alternate performances. The show was greeted with much enthusiasm and a wonderful review from glasgowtheatreblog.com
from Alan Menken, composer of (among others) “Little Shop of Horrors”, “Beauty and the Beast”, “Enchanted”, and the musical “Sister Act” “Audiences go nuts for it” Peter Hilliard, American Musical Director
