A Christmas Carol
Writtle Village Hall
Saturday 22nd December 2012
Pica Productions bring Dicken's tale of the converted miser to life as a rehearsed reading this festive weekend, raising funds in the spirit of the season for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
In an adaptation by Jim Crozier, a cast of seven voices narrate the famous Christmas story and portray the variety of well-known characters. With Victorian costumes, tapestry style hangings from the script stands, Chrismassy candles, a cake stall and mulled wine with mince pies on offer, a particularly festive atmosphere was created in the already merrily decorated Village Hall.
An entertaining, heart warming tale, told engagingly by an excellent cast, raising money for a wonderful cause - nothing could be more ideal to see in Christmas in theatrical style.
