Scrooge is a musical adaptation of Charles Dickens' short story 'A Christmas Carol' and is based on the film musical of the same name. The original production opened in 1992 in Birmingham and enjoyed moderate success on UK tours. The show stopped off at the London Palladium in 2005 where aged stage veteran Tommy Steele took on the leading role. The production continued to tour as part of Bill Kenwright theatricals and is set to open at the London Palladium once again for the 2012/13 Christmas season. The musical features all the songs from the film, including the Oscar nominated song 'Thank You Very Much', written by Leslie Bricusse.
