Don't be a Scrooge - reconnect with family and friends and fall in love with the original Christmas story as you've never experienced it before.

This production is a stunning recreation of the readings with which Charles Dickens toured the world. Phil Zachariah (starring as Mr Dickens) and director James Adler (the founder of Eagle's Nest Theatre) have worked directly from the original prompt copy and eyewitness accounts to create a performance that truly channels the spirit of Dickens.

Ebenezer Scrooge may be the greediest man in England. He has no charity or sympathy for anyone and takes great joy in avoiding social engagements.

On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is haunted by a vision of his deceased business partner, Jacob Marley. Marley warns that his greed will cause him nothing but misery in the afterlife, and that his salvation depends on heeding the lessons of three ghosts that will come his way.

That night, as Scrooge ventures forth with the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, he begins to see that it's never too late to make a change.

"One of the most engaging, powerful and suspenseful nights of theatrical story telling" (

In recent years the phenomena that is Mr Dickens just keeps on growing. In 2007 and 2008 he sold out at the Spiegeltent. Since then our annual Melbourne season takes place in the splendid setting of the Athenaeum theatre. In 2011 Mr Dickens made his premier European tour and in 2012, the 200th anniversary of Dickens birth, he will be touring the world.
