A play performed by Made To Measure Theatre Company with local choir, Crossing the Border. Together they are busy brewing up a suspenseful evening of drama and music, a beguiling winter warmer - with hidden bodies!
In a remote Alpine resort, four characters find themselves thrown together après-ski over a glass of schnapps. Outside, the snow is deep and crisp and even and, as the shadows lengthen, the storytelling begins. Stories about the peculiar characters who used to live on the mountain and a mysterious furry beast that terrorises the valley.
Add a generous measure of seasonal music from Crossing the Border and, voila! - a potent cocktail that’s a real killer.

RoughCast Theatre Company present an original adaptation of that perennial seasonal favourite, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The story of the reclamation of that self-confessed “Humbug”, Ebenezer Scrooge, never fails to delight audiences of all ages with its colourful cast of famous characters both real and ghostly.
RoughCast’s promenade performance has carols to sing along to and dances to join in with (for those so inclined). It will get your festive season off to the merriest of starts - even if Christmas tends to bring out your own inner Scrooge!
