Merry Clink-y Christmas
CELEBRATE the end of another fabulous year at the Clink Theatre with an afternoon of festivities and fun at Christmas at the Clink.
Christmas is coming and the Tropical North Theatre Company and the Douglas Theatre Arts Groups have been busily rehearsing in preparation for the annual performance, which will include heaps of Christmas frivolity and fun.
There will be professional Santa Photos, Face Painting, Street Theatre, Stalls, Games and a Christmas Play.
Stay after the play for a good old Christmas Party at The Clink with Christmas Drinks and a BBQ plus Live Music and much more.
The afternoon kicks off when TNTC presents another original Christmas play, this year called The Far Out Toy Store Escape!.
Written by the talented Ella Bennett, the play is about some special toys that are desperate to get away from the horrible security guard at the Far Out Toy Store - all the toys need are some loving children to rescue them.
Ella and theatre company director, Nicole Carnaby have been working hard with the cast of 22 children to create a theatre experience that will be enjoyed by adults and children alike.
‘‘This is the biggest cast The Clink has seen in a long time and recognition is deserved for this group of six to 12 year old actors for their excellent performance skills and mature approach to the rehearsal process,’’ Ms Carnaby said.
‘‘TNTC has been putting on theatre and running Drama Classes for people of all ages at the Clink since 2011 and the Christmas play has a mix of children that have been with the company for just a short time as well as some that have been in the classes since 2011.
‘‘They have all gained confidence as well as developing all sorts of skills of performance.’’
Come on down to the Clink Theatre on Sunday December 8 from 2pm onwards. Tickets for the play are free for under 3yr, $ 5 for Child 4-14yrs and $15 for 15yrs and older.
