News   Oscar Winner Will Star in A Christmas Carol at Noel Coward Theatre
 
Jim Broadbent, the Oscar-winning actor (for "Iris") who is also well known for his appearances in the "Harry Potter," "The Iron Lady," Woody Allen's "Bullets over Broadway" and Mike Leigh's "Life is Sweet," "Topsy-Turvy," "Vera Drake" and "Another Year," is to return to the West End stage to star as Scrooge in A Christmas Carol this Christmas, beginning performances Nov. 30 prior to an official opening Dec. 9, for a run through Jan. 30, 2016, at the Noel Coward Theatre.

Written by Patrick Barlow (The 39 Steps) and inspired by Dickens' classic Christmas story, it is directed by Phelim McDermott (artistic director of Improbable Theatre, whose productions have included Shockheaded Peter, also seen Off-Broadway, and Theatre of Blood at the National, which starred Broadbent in his last London stage outing).

It is designed by Tom Pye, with Toby Sedgwick as director of movement, lighting by Peter Mumford and sound by Gareth Fry. It is produced by Sonia Friedman Productions.

Further casting is yet to be announced.

The production and The Mackintosh Foundation are supporting St. Martin-in-the-Fields’ Christmas Appeal by donating 50 pence for each ticket purchased. The appeal raises money to assist homeless people with shelter, food, help and advice. As part of the purchasing process, customers will be asked if they would also like to donate 50 pence with each ticket purchased.
