Merry Clink-y Christ­mas

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
