A Christmas Carol
7 years and up

A family show for English speaking audiences (and not so English speaking either!) Since Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol first appeared in 1843, it has become so popular that is hard to imagine Christmas without it. The story immediately inspired theatrical adaptations (the first just a few months after its publication), and since then has been produced at theatres around the world in hundreds of different forms, and inspired films, cartoons and television programs.

Face 2 Face Theatre Co.'s adaptation brings a whole new comical twist to this timeless tale. Set in Victorian London, where the privileged in their fancy parlours prosper, while the poor struggle to survive, A Christmas Carol speaks to all ages as it tells the tale of the cynical Ebeneezer Scrooge. With a heart hardened by a tragic childhood and lost love, Scrooge would rather Christmas never came around to disrupt his money grabbing ways… until he gets a nightmarish series of wake-up calls from the spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Face 2 Face's much loved production captures A Christmas Carol’s magic and humour and will have you rolling in the aisles as well as reflecting on the joy of giving. With its evocative songs, clever improvisations, hilarious gags and magical stagecraft it’s the perfect holiday season treat for everyone.

Although this show is aimed at English speakers, Face 2 Face's particular style of acting based on physical theatre, mime, and slapstick comedy makes this version of A Christmas Carol accessible to spectators whose level of English is only above average... So if you want to see your grumpy Spanish-in-laws smile this is the place to take them!

"Perfect. Highly recommendable"
10/10

everything went amazingly. Laughs, entertainment and great actors. We went with an 8 year old and despite not understanding every word she did understand what the story was about and was more than able to take part. I repeat, really, really good, fun and recommendable.

"A great plan to go with kids"
10/10

An irreproachable show. A classic that never loses force, with the added bonus of it being in English and so the kids (and adults) are not just mere receptors but have to make an effort to understand (in the case of not being English speakers). The actors are fantastic!

"no need for a high level of English in order to understand..."

I have an average level of English, my daughters 8 and 11 years old understood almost everything. On one hand, everyone knows the story. On the other hand, the actors are very expressive and speak very clearly. Note: the violinist very good as well.

"Very good"

Perfect for the whole family - we're a bilingual family (spanish/english) and the show was a great success for our kids aged 9 and 14.

"Laughs and more laughs"

We laughed a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the wit of this small company in its treatment of the music, characterisations and jokes.
