A Christmas Carol

December 5-8th, 7:30pm.
By Charles Dickens. Adapted and directed by Candice Moore.


Full of comedy, drama, songs and the joy of Christmas! It is Christmas Eve and Ebenezer Scrooge is mean and miserly to everyone. He will not donate money to charity to help the poor, he cuts the wages of his Clerk, Bob Cratchit, and he refuses to spend Christmas with his nephew, Fred. He even dislikes the carol singers in the London streets! He is visited by the ghost of his deceased business partner, ‘Jingling’ Jacob Marley, who has risen from the dead to warn him that if he does not change his ways he will be forever doomed to walk the earth without peace or quiet. He also tells him he will be visited by three ghosts. The Ghost of Christmas Past, The Ghost of Christmas Present and The Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come. With a mixture of songs, humour and insight, the ghosts show Scrooge how his mean behaviour has affected those around him. By the end, he is relieved to discover there is still time for him to change and we see him transformed into a generous and kind-hearted human being. He also rediscovers the joy of Christmas!

With special lucky draw prizes!

The event is sponsored by Baker Tilly Hong Kong. This is an English-language production.

Hong Kong Players have been staging Christmas pantos in Hong Kong for the past 56 years! Now they’re proud to present their 57th panto – Snow White, a spectacular re-imagining of the classical fairy-tale designed to delight all the family.

Our story begins when an evil and extremely vain queen steals control of a kingdom and hides the rightful heiress, Snow White, from sight. The wicked queen rules cruelly over her stolen kingdom, and no-one has the courage to stand up to her. But she takes one step too far when she orders Snow White’s death: the beautiful young Princess enlists the help of seven resourceful little rebels and now they want her kingdom back!


Join Snow White and the dwarves, together with a nature-loving Dame, a dance-crazy Prince, a magical mirror, a resourceful woodsman and two daft beavers, on their quest for justice. We’ve got goodies you’ll want to cheer and an evil queen you will love to hate!
