Play on the big screen

Ayrshire Post - - Troon News -

A school in Dunure could see its Christ­mas play taken from the school hall to mil­lions of TV screens across the UK af­ter be­ing named as a fi­nal­ist in Vir­gin TV’s Christ­mas Stars com­pe­ti­tion.

Fish­er­ton Pri­mary School en­tered their orig­i­nal play into the com­pe­ti­tion and it has been short­listed as a fi­nal­ist. This means the play could be pro­fes­sion­ally filmed and made avail­able to four mil­lion Vir­gin TV cus­tomers in the days lead­ing up to Christ­mas.

The win­ners will work with pop­u­lar TV en­ter­tainer, Stephen Mul­h­ern, who will join the school’s cast play­ing the role of nar­ra­tor for a one- off per­for­mance. The win­ning school will re­ceive £ 5000, while a run­ner up will be awarded £ 1000. Twenty two schools will also be awarded £ 100 for reach­ing the fi­nal stage of the com­pe­ti­tion.
