Following rave reviews and a sell-out success at The Cotswold Playhouse earlier this month Live Wire Theatre Company brings A Christmas Carol The Musical to The Rondo Theatre from Tuesday 18 to Saturday 22 December.

Scrooge-and-Bob-3Described by The British Theatre Guide as “compelling”, “powerful”, “beautifully heightened” and  “a must-see show

if ever there was one”  this new musical version of Charles Dickens’ great Christmas classic has a distinct Bath connection. Adapted by award-winning, locally-based playwright Dougie Blaxland, the music has been composed by former Bath student Natalie Farmer.

Natalie who was a music scholar at Kingswood School before training as an Actor/Musician at Rose Bruford has worked with such prestigious companies as The English Touring Opera is also Artistic Director of The Gloucester Theatre Company.
