Disney’s The Muppet Christmas Carol is coming to Scotland later this year with a live orchestra.
The festive classic, starring Michael Caine, will be screened in Glasgow and Edinburgh as part of a UK tour this winter.
The original score – composed by Miles Goodman with songs by Oscar-winning songwriter Paul Williams – will be performed live by The Novello Orchestra conducted by David Mahoney.
The organisers said: “The Muppets perform the classic Charles Dickens holiday tale, with Kermit the Frog playing Bob Cratchit, the put-upon clerk of stingy Ebenezer Scrooge.
“The film also features Miss Piggy as Emily Cratchit, Gonzo as the narrator Charles Dickens, Fozzie Bear as Fozziwig, and Robin the Frog as Tiny Tim.
“Scrooge receives visits from spirits of three Christmases – past, present and future. They show him the error of his self-serving ways, but the miserable old man seems to be past any hope of redemption and happiness.”
The Muppet Christmas Carol will be shown at the SEC Armadillo in Glasgow on Wednesday, December 1, and then at The Usher Hall in Edinburgh on Thursday, December 2.
Tickets go on sale this week.
