City-born ac­tress takes on lead role in fes­tive play

Evening Express (City Final) - - UK & Abroad -

AN ABERDEEN-BORN ac­tor is set to play a lead role in a Christ­mas show this year.

Christie Mitchell will star as one of two sis­ters in Flut­ter, which will be per­formed at the Lemon Tree this De­cem­ber.

The Aberdeen Per­form­ing Arts’ (APA) pro­duc­tion com­pany Freshly Squeezed Pro­duc­tions is work­ing with Tor­toise in a Nut­shell to present the sea­sonal of­fer­ing.

Ar­ran Howie, co-com­pany man­ager for Tor­toise in a Nut­shell, said: “We are re­ally look­ing for­ward to work­ing with Christie. “She has a great en­ergy and en­thu­si­asm within her work and doesn’t shy away from chal­lenges and our very dif­fer­ent style of work­ing. “It was ex­tremely im­por­tant for us to work with in­di­vid­u­als who have strong con­nec­tions to Aberdeen and the lo­cal area and we can’t wait for the pro­duc­tion to open in De­cem­ber.”

Les­ley Anne Rose, pic­tured, head of artis­tic de­vel­op­ment at APA, said: “The au­di­ence will be trans­ported to a mag­i­cal world filled with snow drifts, wind­ing paths and twin­kling stars.” For more in­for­ma­tion visit www. ab­erdeen­per­formin­garts.com
