Ebenezer's good ... and so's Wayne

Northern Ballet Theatre's production of A Christmas Carol is a busy, intimate piece, and a perfect fit for smaller regional theatres. It's lent a clear-eyed immediacy by Lez Brotherston's designs - all smoke-greyed wharves, tattered curtains and greasy bed-linen - but these hard edges never overpower its sentimental heart. As Scrooge, Darren Goldsmith is suitably lugubrious, if perhaps a little too sprightly after his change of heart, while Hironao Takahashi is an excellent Bob Cratchit, and a deft master of Christopher Gable 's spiky choreography.
