A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR ...
VIVA LIVE THEATRE!
The Theatre has been dying for almost 2000 years, yet here we are again, nearing the end of a global pandemic, ready to open this sparkling reinterpretation of Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol.
The live theatre has always struggled to survive. It is not an economic form of entertainment, because it relies on big teams of people, both on and off stage to show up, physically, in one central location, night after night to tell a story. This is also its biggest strength – and the reason why it has survived. The theatre offers a unique experience that brings people together, which simply cannot be replaced by Netflix or any other form of entertainment.
ABOUT THE SHOW
This festive family favourite comes to life as you have never seen it before, wearing a brand new interactive jacket featuring animation and original music.
This production is a sumptuous banquet for the eyes, ears and imagination; a sensory delight for any tired soul.
Introducing several ghosts and characters from his past, present and future, the play takes us on an emotional journey from the old Scrooge`s tight-fisted, miserly ways, to the new Scrooge, spreading goodwill and cheer through his generous spirit.
Perfect for the entire family, this outing has now become a family tradition, this being the 5th incarnation of the production in Johannesburg.
