BAH humbug to Frodsham Players this Christmas.

The amateur theatrical society is putting on a production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol at St Laurence’s Church from November 25-28 at 7.30pm, with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.

The well-loved English classic tells how a series of ghostly visitors persuade the lonely, embittered miser Ebenezer Scrooge to discover a new life of kindness and generosity. Dickens shows a great sympathy for the poor and underprivileged within early Victorian society.

Karen Louise Hebden has created a fresh and lively adaptation for the stage, staying faithful to the original and making skilful use of traditional carols to underscore the action.

The atmospheric setting in St Laurence’s Church should enhance the power of Dickens’s cry for humanity and compassion.

The play is suitable for children and early booking is essential as seating is limited.

Tickets are £6 for adults and £4 for under-16s and are available from 01928 732 515 or by emailing douglas.cashin@
