I went to see A Christmas Carol by Northern Stage, Newcastle upon Tyne, and it was amazing! Everything was very clean and each scene moved smoothly into the next. The seats were set so there were seats on all four sides of the stage (making you feel immersed in the action) and the cast played to it expertly; with something happening in many places that you wouldn't expect to be occupied. Even though that idea was very clever, you would have to see it more than once because there was so much going on for you to see it all in one go! The set was amazing and well thought out (with everything on wheels for easy set changes and new angles) and the cast played their parts to perfection! The way the band was involved in the scenes was so unique and ingenious. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to see a traditional christmas-time play. In case you are interested, tickets are still on sale until the 5th of January!
I went to see Northern Stage perform the play 'A Christmas Carol' in December and this is what I thought.
