It’s surprising how so few Danes are familiar with the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol, but all that is changing thanks to this annual production by the Bernhard Olsen Teater.

This version has trimmed off the dark elements of the original to present a shorter version ideal for the little ones. And this year they’re adding a twist: all the main characters are women: from Scrooge to Bob Cratchit and his son, Tiny Tim.

So don’t be a miser and initiate your bilingual offspring into the world of Scrooge.

Humbug to one and all!
