Organisers have professed there won’t be a dry eye in the house when Alsager Community Theatre presents its Christmas production.
The familiar and much-loved Dickens’ story A Christmas Carol will be on stage at Alsager Golf and Country Club, with three weekday evening shows and one Sunday matinee.
Following on from its successful summer production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, this festive production is billed as “a real treat for Christmas”.
The society’s Deborah Key said: “Adapted from the Dickens’ original by director Eileen Venables this is sure to please.
“We have a cast of experienced actors and newcomers, including a group of youngsters showing great promise. I doubt that there will be a dry eye in the house when Tiny Tim sits on his mother’s knee proclaiming that Scrooge must be the loneliest man in the city and that he will pray for him.
“The production will be in the round – as are all Alsager Community Theatre productions – and will allow for audience interaction with the cast. Nothing too intimidating, only a little carol singing and seasonal greetings!”
She added: “Our Scrooge is proving an appropriately excellent curmudgeon and our Marley – a venerable local actor, director and Press critic – is wonderfully intimidating!”
The show runs at 7.45pm on Wednesday, 8th, Thursday, 9th and Friday, 10th December and there is a 2.30pm performance on Sunday, 12th.
Family tickets (two adults and two under-21s) cost £30. To book, call the box office on 07562 845756.
Alsager Golf and Country Club is offering a pre-theatre festive tea. This should be booked directly with the golf club, by calling 01270 875700.
