Everyone is welcome to join in this festive performance project free of charge - families, couples, individuals, young and old. The community cast will be guided by experienced and skilled theatre professionals to put on a show for Christmas 2022. The project will be based and performed in the Neston area but all residents in Cheshire West can join. Culminating in a local performance with an additional transfer to Storyhouse to involve as much of the community as possible at local and large scale venues. Themes and material will be created by the cast members in collaboration with the professional theatre practitioners. No experience necessary. Participants can be actors, stage managers, wardrobe supervisors, props makers, lighting and sound designers/operators, designers etc. Participation in the arts improves health and well being and after the pandemic this activity will be needed to bring the community back together for a shared aim and for fun.
