What the Dickens…

It’s Christmas Eve 1988, and disco is dead. Embittered, washed-up, one-hit wonder Carole Singer is still reaping the ever-diminishing returns of her 1976 Christmas hit Disco Christmas (Sleigh Bells Slay).

Carole’s deep-rooted hatred of Christmas explodes in resentful rage at all around her. It takes a haunting from four glamorous ghosts to show Carole what fate awaits if she doesn’t change her ways. But will Ms Carole listen?

Written by Myra DuBois, A Christmas Carole makes its world premier at the Palace Theatre, Westcliff, from December 16-24.

A Christmas Carole takes the classic story by Charles Dickens and wraps it up in the tinsel-strewn nostalgia of British Christmases.

Raucous drinking, Christmas hits and family arguments all feature – all gift-wrapped in a bow of camp and outrageous drag!
