Based on the 1843 novel by Charles Dickens and brought to life with beautiful music by Disney’s award-winning composer, Alan Menken (The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Beauty and the Beast, Sister Act, The Little Mermaid and Little Shop of Horrors) and Tony award-winning Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical and Anastasia). Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others. With an infuriated "Bah! Humbug!" Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he's forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his Past, Present, & Future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful "Happy Christmas" before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him.

Oyster Lane Theatre Group are delighted to bring this beautiful show, which features a plethora of leading and featured roles for young and old, as well as plenty of chorus involvement, to audiences in the Republic of Ireland for the very first time!

Expect a few ghostly surprises and lots of festive cheer for the entire family as Oyster Lane brings this once-in-a-lifetime musical to the people of Wexford!
