Christmas Carol

Carnival of Eternal Light returns to the stage with its seasonal production A Christmas Carol.

Based on the Charles Dickens novella, miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is taught the error of his ways and taken on a voyage across the past, present and future. Can a cruel old man redeem his soul?

A Christmas Carol is Carnival’s fourth show after the Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland adaptation The Looking Glass, the superhero-based Elysiad and its GM Fringe 2020 production The Delirium of Phobos. It is adapted and written by Carnival founder Franklyn Jacks under his pen name of J.F.Cornes.

It premieres at The King’s Arms Theatre in Salford December 14-15.
