The perfect holiday show for lovers of laughter, music, and Charles Dickens’ greatest tale is brought to life in splendidly festive fashion by Europe’s greatest and most hilarious comedy troupe, Spymonkey.
Put on your best Victorian bib-and-tucker and hold on to your stovepipe hat as the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future whisk you on a flight of theatrical fancy, chock full of songs, merriment, and plenty of heart.
“Not that far back in time, you irrepressible comedy loons!” Mr. Dickens would surely protest if he were with us. “I don’t recall the Nativity story in my original!”
“No matter!” Scrooge will say, dancing a jig in the snow as he watches Tiny Tim and the rest of the Cratchit family tucking in to the biggest prize turkey in all of London town, and he finally understands what Christmas is all about.
Join us for this warm, unforgettable, and riotously good-natured musical comedy treat for all the family, bless my jiggit!
Spymonkey has played London’s West End, Just For Laughs Montreal, and Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas, delighting audiences around the world with their clever-but-silly ‘neo-Pythonesque’ (Chicago Tribune) mix of high-octane clown, musical theatre, puppetry, and insane contemporary dance.
“The remarkable Spymonkey - headlong absurdism and physical brilliance.”
—The Times London
“The greatest clowns working in British theatre today!”
—Time Out London
“The reigning monarchs of physical comedy. Spymonkey are very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very funny (and I’m not just saying that because I’m paid by the word)!”
—Melbourne Age Australia
“This madcap take on the classic, glistening like a jewel, is a treat to season your Christmas with much-needed hilarity. Mischievous, clever and warm.”
