Presented in the Key Theatre studio from December 15 to 24, with socially distanced seating, the show will see a single actor portray all the famous characters while playing, singing and cracking festive jokes at the same time.

From Scrooge to Tiny Tim, with all the ghosts in between, guests can expect magic, puppetry, live music and comedy.

Producer Becky Owen-Fisher said: “It will be a crazy, energetic and entertaining way to kick off Christmas.
