November Kids: Humbugs don’t come sweeter

A Christmas Carol
Nov 13-Dec 18, Mon-Fri 09:30 & 11:30, Sat & Sun 13:00 & 15:00; Open Air Museum, Kongens Lyngby; 40-165kr;
It’s surprising so few Danes are familiar with the Dickensian classic A Christmas Carol, but all that is changing thanks to this annual production by the Bernhard Olsen Teater.

Suitable for ages six and above, this version has trimmed off the dark elements of the original to present a shorter version ideal for the little ones.

For those familiar with the story but challenged by the language, it should be a breeze keeping up.

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

Humbug to one and all!
