Christmas ghosts descend on Civic

THE Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future are visiting Whitehaven Civic Hall this week.

The talented young cast from Whitehaven Theatre of Youth are performing Ebenezer – a take on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.

The miserly Ebenezer ‘Bah Humbug’ Scrooge is the star in this tale of redemption that has become a defining tale of the Christmas holiday.

The youth theatre is performing this musical play in the 200th anniversary of Dickens’ birth, and it features a catchy score and a wealth of musical styles, including rock ‘n’ roll, blues, rap, ballads and carols.

The show starts on Wednesday and runs until Saturday, nightly at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £8 (or £6 concessions) from the Civic in person, call 01946 514960 or visit www.civichall.org.
