James Seabright presents

The Fitzrovia Radio Hour's



Adapted from Charles Dickens by Tom Mallaburn with Jon Edgley Bond

Directed by Owen Lewis


Prepare for plentiful vintage festive fun as The Fitzrovia Radio Hour take over The Vaults Theatre with their rip-roaring rendition of A Christmas Carol. The Dickens classic is reimagined as a live 1940s-style studio recording, which broadcasts live across the mighty British Empire. At least, it will as long as the cast can keep the spiffing scenes and Victorian stereotypes flowing, despite visitations from more ghosts than they bargained for…


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, in the intimate surroundings of The Vaults under Waterloo station, specially adapted to include the option of cabaret seating for fearless audience members, and a festive welcome treat for everyone to get the traditional Christmas spirit flowing straight away.


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 a sell-out West End season. Miraculously, their audiences all survived a recent adaptation of Dracula, and hopefully the same will be true of this strictly limited four-week festive romp.
