This year at the Christmas Craft Fair, the very hard-working Ross Road Theatre Group will be performing a panto version of “Scrooge”, a retelling of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” with songs and plenty of opportunities for audience participation!
Traditionally performed at Christmas, with family audiences, British pantomime is now a popular form of theatre, incorporating song, dance, buffoonery, slapstick , cross-dressing, in-jokes and audience participation. Straight re-tellings of the original stories are rare in the extreme – plot lines are often ‘adapted’ for comic or satirical effect, and certain familiar scenes tend to recur, regardless of plot relevance!
There will be two performances of “Scrooge” on Friday November 19th, each with a different cast.
6:15 pm & 7:15pm
In the Ross Road Gym
This is an All-Access Pass that includes entry to both shows, as well as the Wandering Minstrels Talent Show from 5:00-6:00pm! What a deal!
