REVIEW: A Christmas Carol at Theatre Royal Windsor

REVIEW: A Christmas Carol at Theatre Royal Windsor

The Christmas spirit entered our hearts well and truly yesterday as we watched University Centre Weston’s take of Dickens’ classic tale of redemption.

Sour-faced Ebenezer Scrooge (Leon Trayman) is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others. 

He hates charity and makes his feelings about Christmas known with an infuriated “Bah! Humbug!”

However he’s forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts appear to him on Christmas Eve lead him through his past, present and future.

The cast are made up of past and present University Centre Western performing arts students, and there’s surely a future star among them: Chrystal Bliss as the Ghost of Christmas Past, Becky Petrie as  the Ghost of Christmas Future, and a jubilant Marvin Muoneke as the Ghost of Christmas present.

It’s a classic story that will warm the hearts and bring out your inner Fezziwig – and a timely reminder that the Christmas message of love and charity goes well beyond the latest John Lewis advert.
