David Hasselhoff to play Ebenezer Scrooge in a new musical arena tour

David Hasselhoff will take on the role of Ebenezer Scrooge in a new musical arena tour, Scrooge – The Family Spectacular with more casting news to follow soon. 

The tour opens   at Cardiff Motorpoint Arena from 6-8 December  before visiting the Birmingham Resorts World Arena and Nottingham Motorpoint Arena on 28th December. At every performance there will be a £3,000 cash prize for one audience member.

Hasselhoff shot to fame  in Baywatch and Knight Rider- He will play the iconic miser in the play, which will also feature a hologram of Pauline Quirke as the Ghost of Christmas Past projected on to a giant 20m x 5m screen. There will be a  horse-drawn carriage, pulled by a 16-hand white Arab stallion horse, as well as a flying four poster bed, a ghost train and over 70 performers from The Pauline Quirke Academy.

Hasselhoff said: "I've dreamt of playing Scrooge for a long time. The great thing about this production is that it's not a panto, it's a fully-fledged Christmas show. It's the Dickens classic with great music on a spectacular scale in huge arenas. But just imagine coming to see the show and then walking away with £3,000 in cash! That's pretty incredible."
