A Christmas Carol tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a bitter old man whose life is full of regrets, and his transformation to community stalwart after he is visited by his former business partner, Jacob Marley, and three ghosts on Christmas Eve. Clive Francis is a well-regarded and long-standing British actor, and has performed for film, television and stage. In nearly 50 years as an actor I would say that A Christmas Carol contains the perfect script; full of emotion and rich with characterisation; an absolute joy to perform, said Francis. The performance takes place at the Cambridge Arts Theatre on Sunday, November 15 at 7.45pm. INFO: Tickets are £12.50/£17.50/£22.50, plus £3 booking fee, from the box office on 01223 503333 or online at: www.cambridgeartstheatre.com.
