Images have been released for Goblin Theatre’s production of Charles Dickens’ story which is now playing in the Painted Hall at the Old Royal Naval College.
Goblin Theatre’s production of A Christmas Carol is running at the venue on selected dates until the 23rd December and features original songs and music performed by a cast of actor musicians.
In this new production, Goblin Theatre was inspired by the Old Royal Naval College’s Dickensian links – the author was a fan of Greenwich and often featured the area in his books and evokes the historical figures and ‘ghosts’ of the Painted Hall to bring this iconic ghost story to life.
Directed by Andrew Barry (Royal Exchange Theatre Elders Company), the cast includes: Victoria
Boyce (Father Christmas at the Hall, Royal Albert Hall), Matt Burns (Once, UK tour), Niccolò Curradi
(La Strada, UK tour/The Other Palace), Rob Gathercole (The Ballad of Rudy, Goblin Theatre) and Mia
Jerome (The Lost Lending Library, Punchdrunk).
This site-specific production features music by Goblin Theatre’s resident composers Mary Erskine and Will Dollard, and book by Goblin Theatre’s Artistic Director Matt Borgatti.
Talking about the production, Artistic Director Matt Borgatti comments:”The production is very much set in the Painted Hall, and although we travel through time and space, it’s the place we return to throughout the show. This is one of our biggest shows yet, and we’re so delighted to be able to introduce our work to new audiences in Greenwich and beyond.”
A Christmas Carol continues to play until the 23rd December.
