G Floor Jukebox: A Christmas Carol

Boxing Day 12pm

A Storynory Pantomime – A dramatic audio presentation of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens adapted by Mike Betteridge of The Working Space Theatre Company.

He was a tight-fisted hand at the grindstone, Scrooge! A squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching covetous old sinner! Nobody ever stopped him in the street to say, with gladsome looks, My dear Scrooge, how are you? When will you come to see me? Even dogs appeared to know him, and then they saw him, would tug their owners into doorways and up courts.

Bertie and Storynory are pleased to present their first mini-play. Natasha plays many parts, including several ghosts who come to haunt the old miser Scrooge. She is joined by Robert Maloney, who performs as Scrooge with a wonderful snarling voice.

 

G Floor Jukebox: The Nutcracker

Boxing Day 1pm

A Storynory production of the classic story with music by Tchaikovsky from his famous ballet.

Clara and Fritz have a very special godfather who makes inventions out of clockwork  (or perhaps they are magical) and his Christmas presents are always amazing and wonderful. This year he gives them something rather small and simple –  a nutcracker-doll in the form of a soldier. It’s rather ugly, and soon it is broken, but Clara loves it all the same. And then it comes to life and proves himself to be a true hero.

The original book in German, “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” was by ETA Hoffmann, who wrote it in 1816. This is a Storynory adaptation, with music and magic.
