Are you ready for Christmas?

It is also on the hunt for various young performers to play the roles of Tiny Tim and members of the Cratchit family.

Rehearsals will take place at the Brookside Theatre in Eastern Road on Monday evenings and Sunday afternoons with additional rehearsals nearer the time of the show.

Informal auditions will take place on Sunday, October 21.

The show will be performed from Wednesday, December 12 - Saturday, Decemeber 15.
