A Christmas classic at Theatre On The Bay this festive season


PIETER TOERIEN’S Theatre On The Bay brings you VR Theatrical’s A Christmas Carol, from 30 November until 10 December, 2022, offering families an opportunity to experience the magical world of Charles Dickens this festive season.

Introducing several ghosts and characters from his past, present and future, this magical play takes the audience on an emotional journey from the old Scrooge’s tight-fisted, miserly ways, to the new Scrooge – spreading goodwill and cheer through his generous spirit.

This classic holiday favourite comes to life as you have never seen before, featuring captivating animation and spell-binding music. Making excellent use of puppetry and audiovisual effects, this inspired, charming piece of theatre will warm your heart and renew your love for the magic of theatre, and the true meaning of Christmas generosity and kindness.

“This production is a sumptuous banquet for the eyes, ears and imagination… a sensory delight for any tired soul,” says Jaco Van Rensburg, VR Theatrical.

Well-known Cape Town-based actor Ashley Dowds is set to play Ebenezer Scrooge (previously portrayed by Jason Ralph, Charles Bouguenon, and Tiaan Rautenbach), the tight-fisted, miserly grump who, after three visitations from ghosts of Christmas past, present and future, is transformed, spreading goodwill and cheer through his generous spirit. Dowds is supported by Amber-Dawn Burnhams, who plays a multitude of roles.
