The Royal Shakespeare Company has revealed the names of the children who will appear alongside Adrian Edmondson (who plays Scrooge) in its forthcoming production of Dickens' classic festive tale, A Christmas Carol. The roles the children play include the iconic part of Tiny Tim, which will be shared by four young actors.
