2020 was a difficult year for all, and indeed for theatre groups everywhere. As we had to cancel CHICAGO just a few weeks before opening, due to Covid19, we worked very hard within all the government guidelines to produce a staged concert in December.
Again, with ever changing lockdown restrictions, we had to cancel this production for the safety of our cast and our audiences.
We did have fun rehearsing though ... and can't wait to sing together again. In the meantime, thank you so much for your continued interest in this production. Director November 2020 ================================================================
To brighten up the dark December nights ... join us for a concert version of this fantastic Broadway musical... Follow the journey of cold-hearted miser Ebeneezer Scrooge, as he is guided by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future to see the error of his ways and become a changed man overnight.
This fabulous re-telling of Charles Dickens’ heart-warming tale of redemption and the true spirit of Christmas has the magic of Broadway behind it. Featuring music by four-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Pocahontas), with lyrics by Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical) and book by Mike Ockrent (Crazy For You, Me and My Girl) ... this concert version of the musical is a real pre-Christmas treat!
These are strange times ... so if you come to see our concert, please know this: The safety and wellbeing of all our cast, crew and audience is paramount. All of our rehearsals have been held under the Covid Secure Guidance that has been issued for performers, and these three shows will follow suit.
