Kids spread cheer with pro­duc­tion and fes­tive party

Macclesfield Express - - MACABRE MACCLESFIELD – PART FIVE -

IT’S been a busy sea­son for young per­form­ers at Fal­li­b­roome Acad­emy who put on a huge end of term pro­duc­tion and hosted a Christ­mas party for se­nior cit­i­zens.

With al­most 200 cast and crew in­volved, the pupils’ pro­duc­tion of Dick­ens’ clas­sic tale ‘A Christ­mas Carol’ proved to be a joy­ful start to the fes­tive sea­son.

Will Rut­ley, who is in year 13 and played Ebe­neezer Scrooge in the show, said: “I have thor­oughly en­joyed play­ing the role of Scrooge in my fi­nal year at Fal­li­b­roome.

“It was such a re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to be part of A Christ­mas Carol and I am grate­ful for the op­por- tu­nity to be part of a great show.”

Stu­dents also or­gan­ised a Christ­mas party for their el­ders, rais­ing funds for the party with a ‘jeans’ day at school.

Tea and cakes were served by the stu­dents, with mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment from the school brass ensem­ble and choir.

Per­form­ing Arts Co­or­di­na­tor, Dawn Devine said: “It’s lovely to be able to pro­vide the op­por­tu­nity for some of our more se­nior com­mu­nity mem­bers to have a fes­tive af­ter­noon out. It is fan­tas­tic for our stu­dents to have the chance to chat to them about the mem­o­ries that the mu­sic and carol singing stirs.”
