FAMILY favourite Tommy Steele will be taking up residence in the Lyric Theatre at The Lowry this Christmas, returning to the role that he has made his own, the wonderful Ebenezer Scrooge.

This is Bill Kenwright’s record-breaking production of the fantastic festive musical “Scrooge” which is based on Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” and when it opened at the London Palladium one national newspaper said: “This breathless soaraway show is magnificent.”

It is always worth a visit to the Lowry in Salford, especially at Christmas time when you can combine a theatre trip with festive shopping – or the January sales!

And “Scrooge” is the perfect holiday treat, a heartwarming family story with stunning sets and costumes, specially created illusions by magician Paul Kieve (acclaimed for the magic effects in the Harry Potter films) and a fantastic musical score which features the Oscar nominated hit “Thank You Very Much”.

No holiday season would be complete without Ebenezer, Bob Cratchit, the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future, and of course Tiny Tim! So bring the family and get ready to embark on a magical theatrical experience unlike any other in this international smash-hit musical sensation.

St Cuthbert’s Operatic Society in Burnley presented their version of this musical last month, now you can see the professional version with the still charismatic Tommy Steele.

Tommy’s legendary career includes more than 20 hit singles, Hollywood movie hits such as “The Happiest Millionaire” and “Finian’s Rainbow” and countless award-winning stage musicals such as “Half a Sixpence”, “Hans Andersen” and “Singin’ in the Rain”.

So bring the family and get ready to embark on a magical theatrical experience unlike any other in this international smash-hit musical sensation Scrooge!

Scrooge will run from next Monday, December 12th to Saturday, January 7th and ticket prices range from £25 to £37, reduced for concessions. Call the Lowry Information & Box Office on 0843 2086005 or visit www.thelowry.com
