The Muppet Christmas Carol In Concert


Disney’s The Muppet Christmas Carol comes live in concert this winter across the UK. And it features its musical score in performance live to the film. So, The Muppets perform the classic Charles Dickens holiday tale A Christmas Carol. Now, we have Kermit the Frog playing Bob Cratchit, the downtrodden clerk of the stingy Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine). Then, we have Gonzo as Dickens narrating the story with help from Rizzo the Rat. Furthermore, the film features Miss Piggy as Emily Cratchit, Fozzie Bear as Fozziwig and Robin the Frog as Tiny Tim. So, Scrooge receives visits from the spirits of three Christmases, representing the past, present and future. And they show him the error of his self-serving ways. But can the miserable Scrooge truly embrace the concepts of redemption and happiness?


The original score for this movies is the work of Miles Goodman. Now, Miles’ other credits include Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Little Shop Of Horrors. Additionally, the movie has songs by the Oscar, Emmy and Grammy-winning songwriter Paul Williams, whose credits include Rainbow Connection and Evergreen. Furthermore, in the theatre, the music will have a live performance by The Novello Orchestra, with David Mahoney as conductor. This UK and Ireland tour comes courtesy of Disney.


Liverpool’s Empire Theatre is a true mainstay of the city, ever since the venue’s initial opening in 1866. But a demolition of the original Empire would lead to the modern Empire opening in 1924. From there, the Empire would become a focal point for the UK’s top touring theatre shows. Indeed, so many iconic productions regularly come to Liverpool’s Empire Theatre. Furthermore, the list of performers to grace the Empire stage over the years reads like a who’s who. In addition, the Empire’s location is pivotal, with its positioning directly in front of Lime Street Station. The Empire has a total capacity of 2,381, with frequent sell-outs throughout the annual theatre calendar. Simply put, the Empire Theatre is amongst the UK’s top entertainment venues and an ideal backdrop for a classic night of theatre.


The show begins at Liverpool’s Empire Theatre on November 28 2021. Then, it moves onto Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall on November 29 2021 and Birmingham’s Symphony Hall on November 30 2021. Subsequent locations include Glasgow’s SEC Armadillo on December 1 2021 and Edinburgh’s Usher Hall on December 2 2021. Finally, the show concludes at Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall on December 14 2021, with further dates and locations awaiting confirmation.
