Rocket Box Theatre Presents: A Christmas Carol
Rocket Box are proud to announce that they are launching their fun, upbeat audio retelling of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol as a festive instalment to their Rocket Bytes Season. Through the medium of audio theatre, we invite you to recline with Rocket Box and experience great stories from the comfort of your sofa.
“Enchanting and spine tingling”
Following their debut regional tour of their award-winning production of Alice Birch’s Many Moons, Rocket Box Theatre offer their audio retelling of Dickens’ classic winter ghost story, filled with intrigue, spine-tingling musical compositions, and a richly detailed winter world built entirely with sound. Prepare to experience an immersive 3D audio world: every footstep, every snowflake, every location. As a company, Rocket Box draw on stand-up, circus, live music, spoken word, slam poetry, dance and cinema.
“Beautifully gentle story telling”
Formed in 2018 at the University of York, Rocket Box’s first piece of work together was their production of Alice Birch’s Many Moons at the Create. Engage. React. Festival, 2019. With this very same production, they are preparing to make their Off-West End debut at the Pleasance Theatre, Islington, in 2021. When making a play, they think of it as a new thing; a fresh thing. They are all authors, bringing their own storytelling stamp to the piece from the point of view of a writer, director, actor, musician, designer, technician, producer, or stage manager. They are a theatre company who believe in sharing with the audience. Their theatre is not a lecture, it’s responsive; they don’t blame or attack. Rocket Box find stories with a pulse and embrace the live.
“Powerful, moving and profoundly thought-provoking”
Rocket Box are also kindly asking for small donations from listeners to go towards the #WeMakeEvents Campaign, an international movement that is working hard to support freelancers in the live events and entertainment industries. More information on how donations can be made will be available soon.
