Scooge with an added twist

Have your say

THE Dilys Guite Players are bringing Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol to Sheffield’s Lantern Theatre next month – and they promise a festive twist to the traditional tale.

A spokesman said: “The production features a formidable cast playing multiple parts, live music and some weird, wonderful dance numbers.

“This irreverent take on the classic Christmas ghost story will be fun for the whole family.”

The cast includes Simon Atherton as Ebenezer Scrooge, Annie Bethel as Ghost of Christmas Present, Stephen Bullivant, Mel Crawley, Bill Darwin, Simon Hanna, Matt Medlock, David Reid and Sam White.

The production, from Thursday, December 8, to Saturday, December 17, is directed by Nic Bowden with designs by Hannah Groves and costumes by Hayley Adams.

n Tickets are £8 and available by contacting the Box Office 0114 2551776.
