The Hamburg Players e.V. present in english "A Christmas Carol"

A Christmas Carol tells a timeless heart-warming tale of humanity and the true spirit of Christmas.

Christmas is a time of cheer and joy, but not for pennypinching old Ebenezer Scrooge. Over the years his heart has turned to stone. The only thing that counts is his money – never waste a penny, and certainly not on the poor! Song and dance? Bah, humbug!

But then a chilling thing happens – the tormented ghost of his old partner Jacob Marley comes back to warn him of what lies in store unless he changes his ways. That night the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come call to haunt Mr Scrooge. They remind him of who he once was, confront him with the realities and hardships of the present, and reveal his personal fate if he stays hard-hearted.
Can Scrooge be moved to a change of spirit? Set in Victorian times, and with live music, folk dance and song.
