"This is a ghost story..."
Following the success of last years production of Cinderella at Netley Chapel, we are delighted to announce that 404 Productions are teaming up with Royal Victoria Country Park once again to breathe fresh life into Charles Dickens’ much loved Christmas classic!
Adapted for the stage by Young Associate Writer Kayleigh Benham, this brand new production will blend dynamic ensemble storytelling with digital technology to create an exciting mixed media experience in the atmospheric surroundings of Royal Victoria Chapel.
'Whilst filming a Holiday Special edition of their popular TV show ‘Dead Haunted’, a team of ghost hunters attempt to summon the spirit of Charles Dickens for a retelling of his famous ghostly tale. Instead, they find themselves wrapped up in the vibrant story itself, discovering that after 176 years the most cold-hearted, tight-fisted character to have ever been created can still teach us the true meaning of Christmas.
Join the crew as you are transported from the surroundings of Netley Chapel into Victorian London for a thrilling theatrical adventure bursting with music, laughter and enough Christmas cheer to see you through to next year!'
Watch the trailer above and then head to the production page to find out more, or get ahead of the game and book your tickets extra early! (We know, we know. It's not even summer yet!)
We are also recruiting local creatives aged 15-21, to join our Young Company and be part of this exciting production. If that applies to you or anyone you know, please get in touch or sign up via the young company page on our website!
