Harefield Gazette - - NEWS - By Steve Bax steve.bax@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

IF YOU need proof that the fes­tive sea­son is just around the cor­ner then look no fur­ther than Win­ston Churchill Hall.

The venue in Pinn Way, Ruis­lip, is gear­ing up for an all singing, all danc­ing ver­sion of the Dick­ens clas­sic A Christ­mas Carol.

The time­less story of Ebenezer Scrooge – a mean old miser who is shown the er­ror of his ways by the ghosts of Christ­mas Past, Present and Fu­ture – will be brought to life by lo­cal theatre com­pany WOS Pro­duc­tions.

Di­rec­tor Damien Saul has been putting the cast through their paces since early sum­mer to make the show a huge suc­cess.

He said: “I was asked to take on Scrooge the Mu­si­cal back in April, and in­stantly knew it would be an ex­cit­ing chal­lenge.

“Re­hearsals have been pro­gress­ing well, and the cast have been work­ing re­ally hard to per­fect their act­ing, singing and danc­ing tal­ents to help cre­ate my vi­sion for the show.

“It needs to be very dra­matic, but at the same time it still needs to re­tain that el­e­ment of fun, and we have cer­tainly had plenty of that re­hearsals.”

Tick­ets to the shows on Novem­ber 18-21 are £15 for adults (£9 for chil­dren) and a fam­ily ticket is £40.

Show times are Wed­nes­day to Satur­day at 7.30pm plus a Satur­day mati­nee at 2.30pm.
