‘‘Our Christ­mas shows are­al­ways slightly in­ter­ac­tive but the dif­fer­ence with this one, as in with a cou­ple of oth­ers we have done, the char­ac­ters start at the front door,’’ writer and di­rec­tor of the play, He­len Snook, said.

The ac­tors will also be get­ting peo­ple up to dance so make sure you are dressed in 1950s out­fits and have your danc­ing shoes on. The Bar­ton Broth­ers, a three piece, will per­form songs like Johnny B Goode, Rock Around the Clock, Hound Dog and Hit The Road Jack. Dancers from As­pire Academy will also per­form on the dance floor the cast and crew have built for the show, af­ter re­mov­ing the tiered seat­ing.

They have also built a bar so the space feels like a 1950s night club.

Some of the char­ac­ters will in­ter­act with the au­di­ence as wait­resses and bar staff.

Each au­di­ence mem­ber’s ex­pe­ri­ence of the play will be dif­fer­ent, de­pend­ing on where they are seated.

If you chose a ta­ble closer to the stage you are more likely to be in­ter­act­ing with the play.
