My name is Gordon and I have agreed yet again (under duress) to assist our Ladies from the Farndale Women’s Guild to be Stage Manager in their forthcoming production of ‘A Christmas Carol’.
I have been watching the cast rehearsing now for several years, and it is beginning to take shape, although I am fearful that their interpretation of the story may be lost on our ever loyal but confused audiences (although our esteemed Director will be inserting a two thousand word explanatory note stapled into the programme).
Set Design and Costumes are worthy of a mention and I am grateful for the loan of a full set of medieval armour which I will be wearing for my protection during these uncertain times on the odd occasion that I am on stage.
We have a very experienced crew handling scene changes, multiple light cues and convincing sound effects.
Unfortunately, none of this crew were available so I am relying on a group of friends from my local ‘Origami Group’.
Please join us at ‘The Millgate Arts Centre’, Delph; the show is running from Saturday 20th November until Saturday 27th November, 2021.
I have it on good authority that they are very funny
