Scrooge Raises Money for London's Lyric Theatre

News   Scrooge Raises Money for London's Lyric Theatre

Scrooge will be raising rather than hoarding money this Christmas. Tim Piggott Smith will lead the cast of A Christmas Carol at a gala performance in aid of the Lyric, Hammersmith.

The gala takes place at the Lyric Theatre on Dec. 13. The Lyric is a lively theatre that both reflects and enhances its local community, and has a studio theatre as well as the main auditorium. It's artistic director is Neil Bartlett, who has also directed A Christmas Carol.

The money raised will be used to help the theatre's planned multi-million pound redevelopment. A Christmas Carol continues at the Lyric until Jan. 11, 2003.
