Pick Me Up’s bringing Scrooge The Musical to the stage!
The show is based on the Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas Carol. It tells the story of a grumpy old man Ebeneezer who gets spooky visits from the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come.
This is an all-singing, all-dancing musical for the whole family, stripping away the darked plot points of the Dickens classic and really playing on the heart-warming elements we all know and love.
The show was first adapted for the 1970 film musical Scrooge! starring Albert Finney. It even won an Academy Award for the score and the song Thank You Very Much.
Mark Hird (whose previous Pick Me Up roles include Captain Mainwaring in Dad’s Army, Colonel Pickering in My Fair Lady and Uncle Fester in The Addams Family) plays Scrooge. The show is directed by Robert Readman, choreographed by Iain Harvey, and the musical director is Sam Johnson.
Don’t miss the show when it comes to Grand Opera House York from 26th November to 1st December.
