A Christmas Carol

Folkestone Quarterhouse, Kent

In 2018, LAStheatre were invited by the Folkestone Quarterhouse to create a new adaptation of ‘A Christmas Carol’ for families.



This fast paced, 3 person, comic take on the classic tale features original songs, beautiful shadow puppetry and visitations from some very silly ghosts. The show runs at 60 minutes and the story retains much of the political commentary that Dickens’ gifted it. In December 2018, the production raised £1,424 for Folkestone homelessness charity the Rainbow Centre.
