From Page to Stage: Theatre at The Mill turns two classic novels into sparkling Christmas treats

This year Theatre at the Mill is producing two magical shows for Christmas: Hunchback The Musical from 2 to 14 December and Eternally Scrooged from 17 December to 5 January.

This year’s musical spectacular at Theatre at The Mill will be an adaptation of Victor Hugo’s masterpiece The Hunchback of Notre Dame, who also wrote classic novel Les Misérables, famously adapted into a sweeping musical. Set in medieval bustling Paris, with gypsy dancers and juggling circus performers, Hunchback The Musical will be a vibrant show, with an energetic cast, live music and a live band, all making a wonderful evening’s entertainment.

Hunchback The Musical, written and directed by Ballyclare-born writer and director Paul Boyd, (Hansel + Grettel, Pinocchio, Molly Wobbly) will be filled with all the familiar themes in Hugo’s novel, unrequited love, friendship and forbidden desire.

This year’s Christmas comedy at Theatre at The Mill will be Eternally Scrooged, an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic novel, A Christmas Carol. Writers Andrea Montgomery and Anthony Toner have transformed Ebeneezer Scrooge into Evangeline Scroogé, with an 80s twist, a romance writer with a heart of stone.

Starring Nuala McKeever (BBC NI Give My Head Peace) as Ms Scroogee, Caroline Curran (Fifty Shades of Red, White and Blue) as Bobbi Cratchit and comedy actress Abigail McGibbon (Can’t Forget About You, Lyric Theatre), Eternally Scrooged will be filled with big laughs, big hair and big shoulder pads!

Hunchback The Musical runs at Theatre at The Mill from Monday 2 to Saturday 14 December and tickets cost £25, £23, £20, £15. Eternally Scrooged runs from 17 December 2013 to 5 January 2014 and tickets costs £20, £18, £16, £14. Book online for both shows at or phone Box Office on 028 9034
