Review of "A Christmas Carol" by Lilou Leclercq (6e2)

On the 13th of December, due to the arrival of Christmas, the 6ème2 class of Ms McLoughlin and Mr Kelly went to the Old Vic theatre to see the amazing seasonal show, "A Christmas Carol".

After a short lunch, we left the school to take the tube to Waterloo. There was a little rain but we got there quickly.

For those who don't know the story, "A Christmas Carol" is about a cruel, old man called Scrooge who hates Christmas. But one night, his old dead partner Marley warns him of a danger. Will the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future change his mind about this time of year?

The show was beautiful and spooky and a delicious free mince pie before the show was a lovely gesture! The actors were wonderful and Scrooge was exceptionally moody. The special effects were very interesting and the singing and the bells sounded amazing. The costumes and stage brought us back to the Victorian times of this Charles Dickens story.

This was a fascinating and exciting show with simple but beautiful special effects and I very much recommend this easy-to-understood show to all ages. And a little humour made it just perfect!
