Following on from the successes of Oor Wullie and The Snow Queen, Dundee Rep has once again teamed up with celebrated musical theatre writers Noisemaker to create a brand new musical version of the ultimate Christmas story, A Christmas Carol, directed by Dundee Rep’s Artistic Director, Andrew Panton.

A cast of 11 actor-musicians bringing a brand new score to life and featuring everyone’s favourite characters – from Tiny Tim and Jacob Marley to the Ghost of Christmas Past, we’ll also be asking the audience to help us tell this iconic story. 

This wonderfully witty re-telling of Dickens’ tale of redemption filled with ghostly thrills is the perfect way to celebrate the holiday season.
