A Circus Carol
Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol story will be turned on its head as an innovative circus production brings Scrooge and the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future tumbling onto the stage at the Norwich Playhouse.
A Circus Carol will be The Playhouse’s very first in-house Christmas production, and is co-produced by Norwich Theatre Royal, Norwich Playhouse and Norwich-based Lost In Translation Circus, one of the UK’s leading contemporary circus companies.
The ground-breaking show will feature a festive feast of high level dynamic circus skills combined with dance and character acting, as well as Lost In Translation’s trademark warm humour, guaranteed to tug at heart strings one minute and have audiences laughing out loud the next.
Expect dramatic acrobatics, aerial arts, balance work, clowning, juggling, character acting inspired by the Commedia dell’arte and much more, all woven into the re-imagined story of Scrooge presented by a tight-knit group of performers from Italy, France, Ireland and Australia.
This unique hour-long show will immerse audiences in musical merriment with dramatic lighting, specially composed music and sumptuous richly-coloured costumes for an uplifting Christmas experience which will truly be out of the ordinary.
