This Xmas I am proud to be part of a wonderful company of actors who are putting on a unique retelling of the Dickens classic. This is in no small part due to the adaptation by actor and creative director Vincent Regan (Troy, 300, Snow White and the Huntsman) and the inspired direction of Mike Friend. It is also great to be part of the inaugural show at a brand new theatre right in the heart of Beverley: the East Riding Theatre. There is still time to come and see it now, but you best be quick as it is almost sold out.
It is a show where the actors muck in and do almost everything on stage. A Brechtian circus where we do everything from striking set to playing various different parts each. I am an undertaker, belle’s husband, fred scrooge’s friend, the ghost of christmas present’s chef, chorus….a dancer at Fezzywig’s party and the ghost of Christmas yet to come!
It’s safe to say its certainly not a dull show, and it’s simply been great fun.
Hope to see you there but if not a very Merry Xmas to all.
