A Christmas Carol musical at Middle Temple Hall
Antic Disposition presents a musical adaptation of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol, at the historic setting of Middle Temple Hall, located in the secluded heart of London's legal quarter, between Fleet Street and the Embankment, from 22 to 30 Dec 2012.
Book and Lyrics by Ben Horslen and John Risebero. Music by Christopher Peake. Directed by Ben Horslen & John Risebero.
On Christmas Eve, tight-fisted Ebenezer Scrooge is disturbed by the ghost of his business partner, Jacob Marley. To help Scrooge avoid the ghastly fate that awaits him beyond the grave, Marley arranges for him to be visited by three spirits. But can the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come persuade Scrooge to open his heart to the magic of Christmas before the sun rises?
The venue will be decked for the occasion with boughs of holly, and filled with the aromas of mulled wine, roasted chestnuts, mince pies and other festive fayre, all of which will be available to help put the audience in a Yuletide spirit.
Middle Temple Hall was completed in 1573 and remains virtually unchanged to this day. "With its narrow, cobbled alleyways and shady, gas-lit courtyards, stepping into Middle Temple really is stepping into the London that Dickens himself knew."
