A Christmas Carol
“I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future.
The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!”
– C. Dickens
British Master storyteller Ashley Ramsden returns for the 15th year for what has now become a tradition. Audiences have come back year after year to enjoy this timeless tale about greed and jealousy but also redemption, hope and generosity… A wonderful way to start the season of good will.
Ashley Ramsden will be accompanied by the Plum Pudding Singers, a Christmas Carol acapella group with four singers originating from the Koninklijke Conservatorium of The Hague.
Charles Dickens’ novel, “A Christmas Carol” (1843), is the famous redemption tale of the wicked Ebenezer Scrooge. On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by spirits: his former business partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet to Come. Each with a different message for Scrooge about how his penny-pinching and indifference has affected himself and the world around him. Will he change his mean, miserly ways before it’s too late?
Can we still learn from this wise tale? Is it possible in this world – that seems to be more divided than ever – to share, live together and listen to one another?
