Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol is being “supersized” into a “funny family spectacular” for the Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham at Christmas 2019.

The show will feature a cast of 120 performers including a gospel choir and circus artistes. Some audience members will walk away with a share of £3,000 cash, given away by Scrooge at every performance.

The staging will be enhanced with giant screens showing both computer graphic backdrops and live action close-ups. The 5,000-seat arena layout will have a 70-foot wide stage and a 60-foot long thrust stage, with some scenes taking place around and above the audience.

There will be only two performances of Scrooge, A Funny Family Spectacular at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham, on Saturday 28 December 2019 at 3 and 7PM. The cast will be announced early in 2019.
