Christmas Carol as you have never seen it before – with apologies to Charles Dickens!

By on November 23, 2011


Knutsford Musical Theatre Company present ‘Scooge’s Christmas Carol – the Panto’. Did you know Scrooge had a housekeeper? He does now. And the Ghost of Christmas Present drives a Rolls Royce?  

The cast have been rehearsing for the last couple of months, and now it is all coming together. Tony Barrow, who plays Scrooge said “Knowing the story has not helped me at all with learning the lines. This is the most bizarre version of Scrooge I have ever heard of. The Wardrobe team have been busy preparing costumes and had some interesting challenges to get the Ghosts ready This is a great way to kick off the festive season and a hilarious evening’s entertainment.

The Panto is touring round, with 3 different venues. The tour starts at Shaw Heath Social Club on Friday 2nd December, 7:30pm. For this venue tickets will be available on the door but get there early because it is first come first serve.

Next venue is High Legh Village Hall on Saturday 3rd December, 8:00pm, where the Company have done several Theatrical evenings over that last few years. Tickets need to be bought in advance because they will go quickly. The final venue is a matinee at the Unitarian Chapel, Knutsford on Saturday 10th December at 2:30pm. Again tickets to be ordered in advance.

For more information about tickets phone Linda (01565 873285). For more information about KMTC see website
