A Christmas Carol

Age Restriction: A Christmas Carol is suitable for children aged 10 and over

Charles Dickens’ tale of Ebenezer Scrooge returns to the stage of the Noël Coward Theatre in 2015, and such is the tradition with this timeless classic, it has recruited one of the biggest names of the acting world to take on the well known lead role.

Jim Broadbent, a respected performer known to those all over the country, will be taking on the role of the angry old man at the heart of the story, whose horrifying attitude towards Christmas gains a fitting response from the spirit world. He follows in the footsteps of a range of names to take on the role over the years, with Patrick Stewart also playing the part in a 2005 production here at the Noël Coward Theatre.

Scrooge is hellbent on ruining Christmas at the start of the show, using his phrase ‘bah, humbug’ whenever it is mentioned and treating his workers poorly by forcing them to work on the big day. Then, on The Night Before Christmas, he is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas’s past, present and future and these frightful glimpses at himself might make him change his ways.

With other iconic characters like Jacob Marley and Tiny Tim, it is a timeless tale that has remained beloved around the world ever since it was first penned by Charles Dickens back in 1843.

Jim Broadbent needs little instruction and those picking up theatre tickets are bound to know him from the wealth of acclaimed film, television shows and stage productions of which he has been a part. His abundant appearances have included films like Hot Fuzz, Iris, Topsy-Turvy, Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull and The Iron Lady to name but a few. Meanwhile, London theatre audiences might also have seen him in early roles like Our Country’s Good at the Royal Court Theatre and The Government Inspector at the National Theatre.

During a period in which families can enjoy shows such as Elf The Musical at the Dominion Theatre and The Snowman at the Peacock Theatre, A Christmas Carol adds to the fun that can be found in the West End. It runs at the Noël Coward Theatre over the Christmas period and into the New Year.
