Press Performances: Sat 9 Dec 3.30pm & Sun 10 Dec 3.30pm
This Christmas, the masters of vintage theatrical comedy The Fitzrovia Radio Hour return to London year with their unique take on Charles Dickens’ timeless tale after an acclaimed run at The Vaults last year.
The festive classic is reimagined as a 1940s-style radio Christmas special, broadcasting live with a studio audience across the mighty British Empire. Fighting off visitations from more ghosts than they bargained for, can the multi-tasking cast keep the spiffing sounds and varied inhabitants of Victorian London alive for the duration of the broadcast?
Spectacular sound effects created live, cut-glass accents, sharp suits and of course a good helping of spooky ghosts combine to create a unique alternative festive entertainment.
The Fitzrovia Radio Hour are an acclaimed troupe whose period charms have worked wonders on venues including Shakespeare’s Globe, Wilton’s Music Hall and the Royal Albert Hall, as well as sell-out West End seasons. Miraculously, their audiences all survived a recent adaptation of Dracula, and hopefully the same will be true of this festive romp.
Praise for previous shows by The Fitzrovia Radio Hour:
‘Comically ingenious… deliciously daft.’ The Times
‘Absolutely spiffing! A joy.’ Daily Telegraph
