Christ­mas mes­sage

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Co­bram Unit­ing Church pa­trons found their fes­tive spirit on Fri­day, en­joy­ing a Christ­mas play and car­ols.

Irvine Hall was the per­fect venue for the first time event be­tween the church and en­thu­si­as­tic cast mem­bers.

The beau­ti­ful nar­ra­tive was adapted to in­cor­po­rate the mes­sage of Christ­mas in a dif­fer­ent for­mat.

A nar­ra­tor told the crowd the story of a lonely wid­owed wood carver in the Aus­tralian alps, who meets a widow and her 10-year-old son.

The widow and her son help him ex­pe­ri­ence a miracle at Christ­mas.

The au­di­ence joined in with well-cho­sen Christ­mas car­ols dur­ing the per­for­mance, ac­com­pa­nied by Val Lee.

The set and painted fire place trans­ported the au­di­ence back to the 1880s.

The cast, who had been re­hears­ing for the past few months, were ide­ally matched to their char­ac­ters and their per­for­mances were very well re­ceived by those at­tend­ing, with some hid­den Co­bram ta­lent re­vealed.

Part of the pro­ceeds will be do­nated to the Co­bram youth cin­ema project.

On stage: The set and painted fire­place re­ally helped to trans­port the au­di­ence back to the 1880s at Irvine Hall.

Cast: Tak­ing part in the play were (from left) Heather In­gram as the nar­ra­tor, Sam Per­ry­man as Thomas, Liz Palazz as Jonathon Toomey and Heather Hosie as widow McDow­ell.
