Following plaudit winning plays, including the recent sell out ‘The Ghost Train’ at the Key Studio, in their 80th anniversary year, Peterborough Playgoers Society complete a highly successful 2015 with ‘The Spirits of Christmas’ at the John Clare Theatre.
The photo taken at a recent rehearsal reflects a show in which that curmudgeon of Christmas, Ebenezer Scrooge, takes us on a whirlwind tour of past, present and future. As he does so, a talented company of 14 entertain us with everything from Mummers’ plays to Morris dancing, from Tudor times to Victorian carols and from the birth of radio to rock and roll.
Colourful costumes, comedy to tickle the festive funny bone and wonderful choral singing of old favourites will ensure that the Christmas season starts in the right spirit for everyone.
To access all areas of this terrific production, devised and directed by Steve Cutts and Pam Tedcastle, contact Peterborough Visitor Information Centre on 01733 452336 or go to Peterborough Playgoers’ Society Facebook page or website where tickets can be booked at £10 including programme and refreshments.
Performances run from Wednesday, December 2, at 7.30pm, to Saturday, December 5 (matinee only at 2.30pm)
