Dramatization by Patrick Barlow
Based on the novel by Charles Dickens

An uplifting and touching classic

The Rovaniemi Theatre approaches Christmastime with the charming and beloved classic, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. We will see tour-de-force acting, exhilarating characters, beautiful visuals and a warm and fresh reminder of the value of the Christmas spirit and the power of sharing life together.

For people of all ages (age recommendation 7 up), this unforgettable story tells of Ebenezer Scrooge, who feels Christmas is ”humbug” and forces himself and his loyal clerk Bob Cratchit to embark on a laborious quest for making more profits - even through the Christmas holidays. After a nocturnal visit from three spirits, Scrooge is faced with his own bittersweet past. The quirky spirits challenge him to scrutinize himself, the world outside him, Christmas, and to see them with new eyes. Layer by layer, his humanity starts to reveal itself. Finally, only catching a glimpse of his future is enough to make Scrooge understand the consequences of his actions.

The play is based on Charles Dickens’ novella, published in 1843, that has since won over hearts worldwide in numerous stage adaptations and films.

In Rovaniemi, the official city of Santa Claus, we see the dramatization by the renowned British playwright Patrick Barlow. In this fast-paced yet poignant stage adaptation, Barlow skilfully uses witty British humour. Music plays an important role in enhancing the story. The adaptation received accolades at London’s West End, and the Finnish premiere will take place at the Rovaniemi Theatre in December 2024.

The directing is by Johanna Freundlich and visuals by Mark Väisänen. This experienced and award-winning duo has worked together for years including, for instance, at the Finnish National Opera and the City Theatres of Turku, Helsinki, Espoo and Jyväskylä.

The main character Ebenezer Scrooge is played by Kari Koivukangas, his loyal right hand by Marko Syysmaa, and the love of his youth by Kirsi Kärnä.

The play has English subtitles.
