A 'reimagined' Kenwright tour now confirmed, with added music and expanded book. Opens at New Wimbledon 29th August! Interestingly, it's being launched in the US at The Fulton Theatre before starting the UK tour.
It will visit Wimbledon, Bristol, Birmingham, Sunderland, Blackpool, Cardiff, Manchester, Oxford, Leeds, Edinburgh, Nottingham, Torquay, Woking, Liverpool and Aylesbury.
I think it's fair to say that, much to their bewilderment, no producer has really managed to make this show a success and Bill Kenwright might well be the man with the ability to work out what this show needs.
As for the illusions...Kenwrights hired Paul Kieve to create the illusions for 'Scrooge' some years before he was hired for 'Ghost' so I think it's kind of ridiculous to predict sheets with cut-out holes...
