With a cast of 50, “Merry Christmas Everyone “opens with a house party on Christmas Eve where a Grandfather is looking after his two grandchildren whilst mum and dad go for out for a quiet Christmas Drink. They keep him awake and distract him with anything they can think of so they don’t go to bed (…..sound familiar?!).
The story unfolds with some amazing song and dance routines that take you on a magical journey of scenes from a traditional Victorian street through to an enchanting Ice Lake and carols in the town square.
Oliver Fosker who played the Captain of the SS American in the Company’s most recent production of Anything Goes is the producer of this show and says “I am so pleased to be able to have the opportunity to produce such a lovely magical production. Christmas shows have always been my favourite whilst growing up within the Company. Working alongside some great people, it really is nice to see such talented youngsters coming through the groups. It’s also been fantastic to see and hear some of the other members of the groups suggestions which has enabled them to make decisions and therefore allow us produce a show collectively”
