A Christmas Carol
“You will be haunted by three spirits…”
Following This Is My Theatre’s previous Winter productions of The Snow Queen ("Wonderfully enchanting!" - Grapevine Live) and The Nutcracker and the Mouse King ("A beautiful show!" - The Stansted Flyer), we are delighted to be back this year with another Christmas. Our adaptation of Charles Dickens’ festive classic - packed with charm, cheer and, of course, plenty of carols - will be sure to warm hearts and spread joy this Winter.
On Christmas Eve, Ebenezer Scrooge, a mean-spirited and miserly old man, is visited by the ghost of his business partner, Jacob Marley. Shown visions of Christmases Past, Present and Future he is offered one final chance of redemption… But will he take it?
This Christmas, audiences are invited to celebrate the festive season as critically acclaimed theatre company This Is My Theatre brings Charles Dickens’ classic tale A Christmas Carol to life in a stunning one-act adaptation.
“Full of festive cheer… as faultless as ever!”
“Ramped up the festive feel-good with melodic carols and outstanding performances… Another 5-star presentation from this gifted team!!”

About the Company
Formed in 2016, we are a Sussex-based theatre company that tours nationwide. We pride ourselves on creating work for all spaces from historic buildings and churches to purpose built theatres and open-air venues.
Whilst the main aim of the company is to produce classical plays and literature that are accessible to all, particularly those living in rural communities, as specialists in making performances for all spaces, we also create commissioned works to bring to life ideas of venues and engage visitors.
We are delighted to work regularly with various charities and privately owned buildings to offer communities high quality theatre locally.
Our first production was Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, performed initially at St Botolph's Church, cared for by The Churches Conservation Trust (The CCT) nestled in the South Downs near Steyning. Due to the popularity of the performance we then toured Sussex and Surrey with The CCT later that same year and haven't looked back since!
We love the challenge of working in different spaces whether conventional or not so are always on the look out for somewhere new or different to perform. In 2021 we will work with a variety of new spaces as well as returning to those familiar.
In spite of the Covid-19 pandemic, This is my Theatre grew during 2020-21 and so we created TIMT to manage our growing number of large scale and purpose-built theatre venues. It's still us and audiences get the same great shows-they're just BIGGER!
" A must-see for lovers of small theatre!"
