Christmas to come early in Droitwich as the Norbury stages Scrooge

THEATRE-GOERS to the Norbury will be able to get into the Christmas spirit by going to see Scrooge.

One of the most endearing musicals of the past decades comes to the Droitwich venue from Thursday (November 20) to Saturday (November 22) and at the same times the following week – from Thursday (November 27) to Saturday (November 29).

Performances are at 7.30pm each evening with a matinee on both Saturdays at 2.30pm.

Scrooge tells the tale of miserly Ebenezer who finds redemption on Christmas Eve after being visited by three ghosts.

It sees Scrooge transformed from being a loathsome individual, detested by the poor whom he exploits, to a man who sees the true meaning of Christmas and life itself.

Tony Catchpowle’s adaptation of Leslie Bricusse’s original production features a 25-strong cast and is full of foot-tapping songs including Thank You Very Much, I Like Life and December the 25th.

Paul Robinson stars in the classic role made famous by the likes of Tommy Steele and Anthony Newley in the production which will take audiences on an enthralling journey against the backdrop of Victorian London.

Christmas is now less than seven weeks away and this show, where Ebenezer is shown his fate by the apparitions of Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future, is guaranteed to give those who see it that festive feelgood factor.

Tickets are available by visiting or by calling the box office on 01905 770154.
