The Muppet Christmas Carol at The Bridgewater Hall, City Centre 29 November 2021 Tickets from £30.50 — Book now

This festive season, bring your family to experience Disney’s The Muppet Christmas Carol presented live at the Bridgewater Hall, with its striking musical score performed alongside the iconic Christmas film, performed by The Novello Orchestra and conducted by David Mahone.

See all your favourite muppets performing a unique take on the classic Charles Dickens story. Our favourite green friend Kermit the Frog will be playing Bob Cratchit, the exploited clerk of the cantankerous and selfish Ebenezer Scrooge (played by Michael Caine), and Gonzo, as Charles Dickens, narrates the story with support from Rizzo the Rat. The film also features the hilarious Miss Piggy as Emily Cratchit, Fozzie Bear as Fozziwig, and Robin the Frog as Tiny Tim. The three Christmas spirits — past, present and future, pay Scrooge a visit. Each Christmas spirit attempts to show Scrooge the mistakes he’s made to help him to redeem himself, but unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be much hope for the grumpy Scrooge… Or is there?

The original Muppet Christmas Carol score was composed by Miles Goodman (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Little Shop of Horrors) with songs by Oscar®, Emmy® and Grammy®-winning songwriter Paul Williams (Rainbow Connection, Evergreen).

For a mesmerising, musical night filled with magic and joy with your favourite muppet friends, book your tickets by clicking the ‘Book Now’ link below.
