Join Chickenshed for a magical and brilliantly uplifting retelling of the unforgettable story of Ebenezer Scrooge, that “squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous, old sinner”. Follow his spooky encounters over the course of one incredible night and his journey ultimately to become the friendly, charitable man who “knew how to keep Christmas well”.
Charles Dickens’ classic story has arguably come to define Christmas in the 175 years since its publication, and there have been numerous memorable versions, both on stage and screen. Chickenshed has updated, renewed and refreshed this amazing and heart-warming tale for 2018 in an entirely brand new musical version, set in 1930s Britain.
With a cast of over 200 people on stage for each performance, original music, stunning sets and incredible design, we guarantee an absolutely unforgettable festive theatre experience for young and old!

Chickenshed is an inclusive theatre company that first began in 1974. Primarily based at their own purpose-built venue in North London, they create theatre for all ages and run successful outreach projects, education courses and membership programmes throughout the year.
They are also a registered charity and rely heavily on the generous support of individuals, companies, trusts and foundations in order to continue their pioneering work.
Performance is at the heart of everything they do, and brings together all aspects of the company. Their work uses the stage to celebrate diversity and performance as a vehicle to communicate with audiences and tackle topical social issues. They regularly present original and entertaining productions for young children, families and adults. They also create new work, inspired by the people around them, about personal and social issues that affect society today which they then take on tour to theatres, community centres and schools across the UK.
