Be Amazing Arts opens third season of A Christmas Carol in Malton Market Place

The Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come towers over Quinn Richards’s Scrooge in Be Amazing Arts’ staging of A Christmas Carol in Malton Market Place in December 2022. The show returns from tonight

MALTON company Be Amazing Arts launches a third winter of peripatetic A Christmas Carol performances tonight (5/12/2023).

After sell-out seasons for Christmas 2021 and Christmas 2022, creative director Roxanna Klimaszewska’s adaptation returns for a run of 7pm shows until December 24 (when the starting time will be 5pm).

Audience members will follow author Charles Dickens around Malton’s beautiful Market Place as he tells Ebenezer Scrooge’s redemptive story and brings to life the much-loved characters of this 180-year-old novella.

Starting at Kemps General Store & Kemps Books, the promenade show includes a festive tasting platter from The Cook’s Place, in Market Street, as audiences feast with the Ghost of Christmas Present and raise a warm winter drink to toast to the goodwill of Christmas. 

Producer and managing director James Aconley says: ‘‘Three years ago, when we decided to produce a performance of A Christmas Carol, there was just no question of where it would take place.

“Little did we know we’d be back for two further years due to popular demand! We really can’t wait to share this unique and immersive performance with our audience again this Christmas. It will certainly be something a bit different but also very festive and magical.’
