A Christmas Carol - Steampunk Style

Thursday 15th-Saturday 24th November 2018

A fun, family-favourite tale of Scrooge, an ageing miser that dislikes Christmas, who is transformed after visions of Christmas past, present and future.

This retelling brings to life the fun and imagination of steampunk ... so what’s that you ask? Think science fiction, the old fashioned way: anachronistic technology driven by steam, brass goggles, intrepid inventors and some of the greatest top hats you will ever see.

This show is ideal for families, groups of friends, lovers of Steampunk and the curious who are keen to see something fresh, creative and fun.

Adults $22.50, Under 12 $15, Group of 4 $15 (pp)
Tickets also available from the Theatre Royal box office.
