Smoky Mountain Christmas Carol UK premiere

Set in the Great Smoky Mountains in the heart of east Tennessee, life is hard at the best of times, and the 1930s are anything but the best of times! This fantastic new musical is a rewrite of the A Christmas Carol. Dickens’ classic characters come together with Dolly Parton’s masterful song writing and storytelling in a production that is sure to warm your hearts!

What is Smoky Mountain Christmas Carol about?

Ebenezer Scrooge is the owner of a mining company town and is so blinded by money and callous greed that he can’t even recognise the beauty and gifts of the holiday season. A snowstorm looms and Christmas Eve is fast approaching when Scrooge is visited, first by his late business partner, then by three ghosts who strive to make him Scrooge see his life in a different way. The spirits attempt to thaw his heart in a bid for him to accept that love is the most valuable thing of all.
