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 writer Vincent Regan 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 and is receiving some very positive feedback.
It is a performance where the actors muck in and do almost everything on stage, 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…. and for those who’ve seen it and are interested, I am also the crow!
It’s safe to say its not a dull show and for me still at the beginning of my acting career, its been great fun so far (and educational; learning from the more experienced professionals). A winning combination I’m sure you’ll agree.
Hope to see you there but if not a very Merry Xmas to all.
