About the Show
An actor, an author and an equally gifted musician, Simon Callow has had a clear Charles Dickens influence on his career from the get-go. Previously, Callow performed The Mystery of Charles Dickens on both Broadway and West End and also undertook the equally renowned Dt Marigold & Mr. Chops. Apart from performing plays written by Dickens, Callow has also played the legendary author on TV’s Doctor Who. Apart from Dickens, Callow is also known for his stellar work on various stage productions including Waiting for Godot, Equus, and The Woman in White. A Christmas Carol with Simon Callow is directed by Tom Cairns who is also the set designer and to say that the two talented artists have created something spectacular wouldn’t be an understatement.
One of the revered and iconic stories in the English language, A Christmas Carol doesn’t need an introduction. A holiday staple in most homes, the story is truly a timeless tradition and this version of the story brings all that magic to you courtesy the charm and acting prowess of Simon Callow.
Join along as all your favourite characters from the story are brought to life by Simon Callow, including Tiny Tim, the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future, Bob Cratchit, and Scrooge. The story remains the same as the ghosts take miser Scrooge to three different time periods and teach him a lesson about the power and importance of giving and generosity in the process. This quintessential Christmas tale is an outright celebration of everything that could be great with the world if the people were just a little kinder to each other.
The Arts Theatre has a seating capacity of 350.

About Arts Theatre
Located at Great Newport Street, in Westminster, the Arts Theatre is a popular London performing arts venue. The theatre first opened on 20 April 1927 and hosted performances of unlicensed plays for its members-only club. Back in the day, Arts Theatre was a part of a small group of independent theatre companies, including the Q Theatre, the Gate Theatre, and the Hampstead Everyman.
These theatres were infamous for taking risks by producing a wide range of somewhat controversial and experimental plays that were labelled as commercially non-viable. In 2014, Louis Hartshorn took charge as the Executive Director of the Arts Theatre with long-term business partner Brian Hook joining as Producer. Presently, the theatre has expanded to an additional floor which is home to two rehearsal rooms and a 60-person studio theatre named 'Above The Arts'.
