Scrooge reinvented for Christmas Panto

Pantomime is as much Christmas as mince pies, decorations and red-nosed reindeer are, and those with families flock to experience the thrill of shouting 'He's behind you!' at various performances every single year.

If you're holidaying on the Isle of Wight this winter, you don't have to be left out of the family fun, with a reinvention of Dickens' classic tale A Christmas Carol dramatically reinvented by the Trinity Theatre production group.

The imaginatively entitled Scrooge - A Christmas Carol: A Traditional Pantomime is packed with every single type of fun you can expect from such an event, with plenty in the way of songs, laughter and hilarity despite the strong moralistic messages.

Few stories are more heartwarming than the tale of how a grouchy old gent changes his mind about the festive holiday after being visited by three ghosts, who take him on an emotional rollercoaster to demonstrate the importance of charity, happiness and family - all these things we hold near and dear to our hearts at Christmas.

In a tale that has been modified by the Trinity Theatre, the Scrooge Chocolate Factory is looking very bleak indeed, with pay cuts and extended hours looking to dominate all of December.

With such measures bringing the whole factory down, the ever-optimistic Bob Cratchit leads a revolution against the ghastly Scrooge, hoping he will change his mind in time for the big day.

A well-timed visit from some ghostly friends will also prove key in saving the festive season from doom and gloom in a fantastic reinvention of a classic.

The action kicks off at Trinity Theatre in Cowes, where a regular ferry service can have you back on the mainland after the show if you so desire.

Performances start from December 6th running through to December 15th, with evenings starting at 7:30pm and matinees from 2:30pm on certain days.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801665321-ADNFCR
