Heart-warming musical returns
11:30am Wednesday 25th September 2013 in News
A CLASSIC musical that had its world premiere in Birmingham more than 20 years ago is returning to the city.
Scrooge The Musical opened to critical acclaim in November 1992 at Birmingham’s New Alexandra Theatre, and now the show is making its triumphant return to the venue.
In the original 1992 production Anthony Newly starred as Ebeneezer Scrooge whilst the cast also featured Stratford Johns, Tom Watt and Jerome Wallington, as well as Jon Pertwee, the star of Worzel Gummidge.
It then moved to the London Palladium in 2005 where legendary actor Tommy Steele picked up the role, before being revived at London Palladium in 2012.
Tommy Steele’s return to the London Palladium in Scrooge the Musical in 2012 sent him into the record books as the star to have headlined more performances than any other at London’s most famous theatre.
A prestigious plaque was mounted at the Palladium to honour this extraordinary achievement.
Tommy’s legendary career also includes more than 20 hit singles, Hollywood movie hits such as The Happiest Millionaire and Finian’s Rainbow, and countless award winning stage musicals.
Based on Charles Dickens’ heartwarming story A Christmas Carol, Scrooge The Musical is the perfect heart-warming family treat.
Join Ebenezer, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future and a whole host of Dickensian characters in the award winning, international smash hit musical.
It is on from October 28 until November 2.
Tickets are priced from £10 to £32 and are available by calling 0844 871 3011 or via atgtickets.com/birmingham.
