Ginificent Theatre Company present ‘A Christmas Carol’
Year 9 were treated to a one-hour production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol by Ginificent Theatre Company on the 4th of December. The wonderfully accurate performance engaged the students and prompted many searching questions in the Q&A that followed.
It has become an annual treat for Year 9 students, whilst studying this Dickens masterpiece, to experience a performance which is so close to the original text that their understanding and appreciation of literature is enabled.
Accompanied with a stunning cinematic soundscape and imaginative set, students were transported, stave by stave, through Dickens’ literary genius. The actors captivated the audience with their swift change of costumes and faithful presentation of the characters, even adding some humour, just as Dickens wished!
