Christmas Carol has begun

The Christmas Carol has now been performed three times: twice to schoolchildren in the last two mornings, and once last night to an 'ordinary' audience. Enthusiasm for the play seems high, and verbal reports have been very positive.

People like the look of things: the sense of authenticity about the costuming; the way in which the lighting creates a good deal of mood (along with smoke machines) - this morning I came out to oohs and aahs from the kids in my appearance as Marley's Ghost. The smoke helped, of course!

And the play swings from the humorous to the bitter and twisted (Marley again, and Scrooge himself) to joyful to emotional. There are some great moments in it.

Looking forward to seeing you there...!
