Film: The Muppet Christmas Carol (U)

17th December 2017 at 19:30
The event will be held in Palace Theatre, 430 London Road, Westcliff-on-Sea, SS0 9LA, and is £7.50 to attend.

Michael Caine plays the old miser Scrooge with Kermit as his long-suffering but ever-hopeful employee Bob Cratchit.

Miss Piggy as Cratchit’s wife, and a host of Muppets (including the Great Gonzo as an unlikely Charles Dickens) taking other primary roles in this bright, playful adaptation of the sombre tale. Or at least it starts brightly enough—the anarchic humour soon settles into mirthful memories and a sense of melancholy as the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future take Scrooge on a journey of his lonely, wasted life.
