Southend Drama Society presents Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, adapted by Bill Peel.

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an old man who transforms his miserly ways after four ghostly visits one Christmas Eve. Scrooge is visited by a series of ghosts, starting with his old business partner, Jacob Marley.


The three spirits which follow, the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet to Come, show Scrooge how his mean behaviour has affected those around him. At the end of the story he is relieved to discover that there is still time for him to change and we see him transformed into a generous and kind-hearted human being. 

Southend Drama Society’s production will be as traditional as possible, with Dickensian dress and scenery, to immerse the audience in the atmosphere of this much loved seasonal tale.

This is an amateur production.
