Hold onto your nightcaps because Lamphouse Theatre is coming to St Albans with a one-man version of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
You can see Scrooge live on stage this winter at the Trestle Arts Base on Saturday, January 2, and Sunday, January 3.
Peterborough-based theatre company Lamphouse will be performing a fun-filled, one-man version of Dickens’ classic tale at the St Albans venue.
Presented at Trestle in Russet Drive, with socially distanced seating, Lamphouse’s show will see a single actor portray all the famous characters in A Christmas Carol, while playing, singing and cracking festive jokes at the same time.
From Scrooge to Tiny Tim, with all the ghosts in between, you can expect magic, puppetry, live music and side-splitting comedy in this spectacular live show.
Producer Becky Owen-Fisher said: “We’re incredibly excited to be performing live on stage this Christmas.
“Our one-man Christmas Carol will be a wonderfully crazy, energetic and entertaining way to kick-off Christmas.

“We’re also going to be making filmed versions of the show available online for anyone that would rather stay at home, or for those who want to see the alternative Scrooge!”
