A CBeebies Christmas Carol
This year’s CBeebies Christmas Show will be a specially-composed musical version of ‘A Christmas Carol’, featuring CBeebies stars including Alex, Andy, Cerrie and Cat, Justin Fletcher, Phil Gallagher (Mister Maker), Ben Faulks (Mr Bloom), Gemma Hunt (Swashbuckle) Rebecca Keatley (Let's Play), Chris and Pui (Show Me Show Me), Katrina Bryan (Nina), Cook and Line (Swashbuckle) and Robert the Robot.
Today's CBeebies favourites will be joined on stage by some very special guests - legendary former children's presenters Derek Griffiths, Iain Lauchlan (and Fingermouse), Dave Benson-Phillips and Baroness Floella Benjamin.
The classic novel by Charles Dickens will be adapted for the CBeebies audience to tell the story of how miserly Ebenezer Scrooge needs a bit of CBeebies magic to help him learn to care for those around him and share the joy of Christmas! Three presents will lead Scrooge through a series of experiences that help him change his ways - and if the audience join in with all the singing and dancing along the way, it’s sure to do the trick!
‘A CBeebies Christmas Carol’ will be broadcast on CBeebies at 4.45pm on Friday 20th December. We’ll share lots of fun behind the scenes material nearer the time on the CBeebies Grown-ups Facebook Page and via @CBeebiesHQ on Twitter.
