After performing Frankenstein” by M. Shelley in April, “American Drama Group Europe” theatre company in cooperation with “TNT Britain Theatre” are coming back to Bucharest with the more thrilling and teachable performance – “A Christmas Carol”, directed by Paul Stebbings and Christian Flint. Original score by Tom Jonhson. Producer: Grantly Marshall (ADGE). Distributor: Domante Tirylyte.
“American Drama Group Europe” is an internationally renowned fully professional touring theatre company that has been performing musical theatre plays in English, French, and Spanish throughout the world for over 4 decades – from China and Japan to Australia and Singapore, from North America to England and Scandinavia to Germany and Central Europe. They have an impeccable reputation for producing some of the finest plays with a very high-quality entertainment value and they have won first prize at various theatre festivals including Shanghai, Edinburgh, Thessaloniki, Munich, and even Teheran.
“A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens – this simple story brings a smile to most people’s face and why not? It might be the best short story ever written, or the best loved, or the best known or the most enjoyable, it certainly has to be performed, as Dickens himself knew. It’s December and we must have our pudding, our parsnips and our Christmas Carol.
If “A Christmas Carol” is the most popular story ever told, then this stage version is possibly the most successful recent adaptation. This production is true music theatre –not just a seasonal entertainment but a real gripping and dramatic tale. A performance for young and old, a Christmas feast of theatre that has delighted audiences in almost every corner of the globe.
The story is enormous fun, but it is also surprisingly serious. We take you down the alleys that Dickens travelled, through a London that defined modern life because it was the first megalopolis, an urban nightmare where the very air was unfit to breath. The wealthiest city in the world was the city with the poorest in the world. This was a contrast that Dickens dedicated much of his life and work to exposing.
Today the truly poor have been banished to the Third World. London only represents a part of the world that has forgotten the true message of “A Christmas Carol”: the Christmas Spirit is joyful because it shares its joy and its feast with others, especially the poor. The play is for them and for you.
“A wonderful season treat… Behind the clever jokes and very hummable tunes is a timely reminder that Christmas is about more than shopping and making money. Touring theatre at its best.” – SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST, Hong Kong.
“A performance like this is worth far more than many literature lessons put together.” – ERFGOOIERS COLLEGE, Huizen, Holland.
