THEATRE RE-RUN OF POPULAR CHRISTMAS CLASSIC
Friday 15th December 2017
A sell-out Christmas family show is back on the road again with fresh faces.
Suffolk-based Spinning Wheel Theatre is bringing back its innovative adaptation of A Christmas Carol to community venues across Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire this festive season.
The professional touring company, formed in 2011, first put on A Christmas Carol, written by Charles Dickens, for its 2015 rural tour which proved a hit with audiences.
Aimed at children aged five and over, parents and grandparents, the show features puppetry, singing and evocative scenery.
The cast of three play multiple roles in the traditional production.
Included in the trio of professional players is Samuel Norris, 23, from Mildenhall, who plays Bob Cratchit and the Ghost of Christmas Present. Mr Norris took part in Spinning Wheel Theatre’s Aspiring Artist programme – which nurtures budding actors and creative.
“I’m excited to see how the three of us decide to play all the characters. I’ve got eleven of them – it’s going to be a fun challenge!” Mr Norris said.
Also joining the cast is Alice Osmanski, from Bawdsey, who also starred in Spinning Wheel Theatre’s production of The Secret Garden earlier this year. Antony Eden will take on the role of Scrooge, having recently concluded his run in The Woman in Black in the West End.
Ms Wyllie added: “A Christmas Carol is a popular tale because everyone has a bit of Ebenezer Scrooge in them. It is nice to be reminded what Christmas is about. It is about caring for each other and being kind. The show is a great alternative to a pantomime and is a universal story.”
