Local supporting cast bring an extra dash of Dickensian delight to Bah Humbug! A Christmas Carol.
This year, in addition to our accomplished and multi-skilled Miracle regulars Steve Jacobs, Jason Squibb, Catherine Lake, Hannah Stephens and Giles King, we are delighted to introduce our wonderfully talented local supporting cast!
‘It’s so exciting for us to have an opportunity like this to offer local people as a progression from taking part in Miracle acting workshops. We have been overwhelmed not only by the number of people who wanted to get involved with the show, but by their enthusiasm and sheer talent!’ Explains Bill, ‘so much so, we couldn’t just have one cast – we have had to have two, the ‘Hums’ and the ‘Bugs’ are taking it in turns to perform across the run!’
After two months of weekly workshops in Falmouth, the ‘Hums’ & ‘Bugs’ gathered with Miracle team last week for their first full cast rehearsal. With Keri Scott, Hannah Stephens & Catherine Lake leading the evening – there was plenty of giggling going on, so it seems safe to say that this company will be having as much fun off stage as on this winter!
Alongside production sponsor Dales Dacia, the local participation element has been made possible through funding support from FEAST and locals sponsor Fal River.
‘We are so delighted and proud to say that we are supporting the Miracle Theatre Christmas Show again this December. said Fal River Managing Director Ben Mark Last year they did a wonderful job of entertaining people from far and wide with Cinderella and we are really excited to see what delights and surprises come with ‘Bah Humbug! A Christmas Carol’. For us at Fal River we are really happy to see such wonderful events and opportunities like this one come to Falmouth. It is great to have a professional show come to one of our Fal River partner venues.’
