Tewkesbury's The Manor Players proudly presents Leslie Bricusse’s smash hit musical version of Charles Dickens’ immortal festive classic – A Christmas Carol.
Based on the 1970 film, which starred Albert Finney, Scrooge leapt from the silver screen onto the stage in 1992 in the guise of Anthony Newley and then Tommy Steele and has been wowing theatre audiences ever since.
Join us for a fun filled musical adventure through Victorian London, as Ebenezer Scrooge learns the true meaning of Christmas. Featuring such toe-tapping favourites as Thank You Very Much, I Like Life and December 25th, get your festive season off to a cracking start with this heartwarming family musical.
This amateur production of "Scrooge!" is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.
The amateur dramatics group originally formed as Mitton Manor Players in 1969. They were affiliated with Mitton Manor Primary School and used their facilities for the first meetings, rehearsals and performances of plays and pantomimes.
The society’s success saw them move to the Watson Hall and then on to the newly opened Roses Theatre in December 1975 for their performance of Dick Whittington.
Following the sensational response to their first major musical ‘Oliver’ in 1979 at The Roses, The Manor Players of Tewkesbury as they were now known made this their home for the next 20 years.
Now some 49 years after those first tentative steps of treading the boards, with almost 40 years of musicals as diverse as Guys and Dolls, Little Shop of Horrors, My Fair Lady, Cabaret, and Hello Dolly to name but a few under their belts, also plays such as Daisy Pulls It Off and Calendar Girls, Manor Players are delighted to be returning to The Roses for their forthcoming production of Scrooge the Musical.
The Manor Players are a friendly group who are always happy to welcome new members, both on stage and behind the scenes. No experience is necessary; only enthusiasm and a good attitude! Get in touch now and join in the fun!
