Liverpool Playhouse Theatre (C) Liverpool BID Company

A Christmas Carol has been announced at the Liverpool Playhouse Theatre this Winter, from 4th – 24th December 2020.

A small cast of actors will perform in Patrick Barlow’s (The 39 Steps) witty and joyous adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic.

A Christmas Carol will be directed by Gemma Bodinetz, in her final production as Artistic Director of the Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse Theatres.

Gemma Bodinetz said:

“I am delighted that my final show as Director of the Everyman and Playhouse will be a festive treat for Liverpool families. Patrick Barlow’s version of Dicken’s A Christmas Carol has the same fun and invention (and cast size) that he brought to The 39 Steps, but also retains the tenderness at its centre.

“Perhaps this Christmas more than any other, it will be poignant to remember the importance of human connection and goodwill to all mankind”

Featuring carols and songs, the show will star Everyman Rock ’n’ Roll Pantomime favourite Adam Keast as Ebenezer Scrooge!

Adam will perform alongside other local actors, maintaining social distancing in rehearsals and performances.

“Adam Keast was in my opening of Twelfth Night in the new Everyman and has delighted our Christmas audiences every year in our acclaimed Rock ’n’ Roll Panto – I can’t wait to see his Scrooge, said Gemma Bodinetz.

“The Playhouse auditorium may be socially distanced, but we hope to beat away lockdown humbug with some theatrical magic and the joy of the live, shared experience”.

Audiences attending A Christmas Carol will receive up to date advice in advance of their visit on safety measures in place, to ensure conditions are as Covid safe as possible, in line with Government recommendations.

A money back guarantee will be offered if performances are cancelled.

If an audience member is unwell, they can receive a full refund up until 11am on the day of the performance they booked to attend.

Tickets go on sale Thursday 22nd October 2020.
