CAROLLERS and school children are learning theatre craft as rehearsals get underway for Theatre in the Quarter’s production of A Christmas Carol at Chester Town Hall.
A cast of professional actors from stage and screen are working alongside singers from the community and 62 school children playing a range of roles including Dickens’ much loved Tiny Tim.
Artistic director Matt Baker said: “Along with some amazing acting talent, we have also found some wonderful musicians, singers and dancers. We just know this is going to be a magical production.”
The play is directed by Russ Tunney, designed by Julie Croft with film and digital media content by Helen Newall and music composed by Matt Baker.
Tickets from £10 (£5 concessions) are available from 0845 241 7868, visit www.chestertownhall.co.uk or call into Chester Tourist Information Centre.
Theatre in the Quarter are on the look out for unwanted artificial Christmas trees to decorate Chester Town Hall for the production. You can drop off unwanted trees at the Town Hall or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a pick up. Trees must be between two and six metres in height. The crew are also seeking for donations of holly, ivy, evergreen garlands and glass baubles.
