Exeter Northcott Theatre and Creative Cow present

A Christmas Carol

For Christmas 2015, Exeter Northcott Theatre and Creative Cow present a magical new adaptation of Charles Dickens’ much-loved Christmas classic.

Ebenezer Scrooge is a notoriously bitter old man who is determined not to let Christmas interfere with his miserly routine. But one Christmas Eve, Scrooge receives some unexpected supernatural visitors who are determined to show him the true spirit of Christmas and the error of his ways.

Creative Cow’s artistic director Amanda Knott directs an ensemble company of actors and musicians to bring you this magical, inventive, heart-warming adaptation of a festive classic, with Dickens wit and masterful storytelling at its core. Guaranteed to appeal to young and old alike, A Christmas Carol will melt even the coldest of hearts and leave all rejoicing with Christmas spirit.
