McNeff'S A Dickens Christmas

The Haymarket, Basingstoke: 5 December 2008 - 3 January 2009
Christmas? Bah! Humbug! Stony-hearted miser Ebenezer Scrooge loathes Christmas and all it stands for. When three ghosts, of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come visit him, he starts to realise the error of his ways and learns the redeeming power of the true Christmas spirit. Stephen McNeff's choral suite of Christmas music will be performed throughout December in Basingstoke, forming the seasonal show 'A Christmas Carol'.

Directed by Richard Williams
Designed by David Collis
Lighting design by Arnim Friess

Composer's note on A Dickens Christmas:
1. All Hail to the Days
2. King of the Seasons
3. Christmas Far Away
4. Chorale (Little Lamb)
5. Catch (The Carnal & the Crane)
6. Finale (Mr Fezziwig’s Party)
This Suite of Christmas songs can be performed by any four-part ensemble or choir (there were eight voices in the Liverpool Playhouse productions). The accompaniment is optional and need not necessarily be a piano. The Suite could be performed as part of a carol service
or in a Christmas concert. It does not have to be done in its entirety or even in order, and it could be interwoven with suitable Christmas readings such as excerpts from Dickens’s, A Christmas Carol (though there are many others). Given their origin, the songs might lend themselves to some theatricalization.
