This Christmas, three aspiring actors from King’s Hall School take to the stage after landing roles in a major musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol at the Brewhouse Theatre in Taunton.
After a successful audition process, Year 5 pupil JJ Dayus-Jones secured the sought-after role of Timothy “Tiny Tim” Cratchit, a poor boy who serves as an important symbol within the festive tale of redemption.
Georgia Fidler (Year 6) and Daisy Kamsner (Year 7) also join the production, performing alongside a professional cast in the show’s community ensemble.
The adaptation of the much-loved classic combines faithful storytelling with spellbinding stage magic, transporting audiences to the snowy streets of Victorian London.
Justin Chippendale, Headmaster at King’s Hall School, said: “As shown by our recent production of School of Rock, we have many pupils who relish the reward of being involved in drama productions, and are therefore very proud of those treading the boards at the Brewhouse”.
Commenting on their dedication, he added: “Georgia, Daisy and JJ come in to school full of excitement and yuletide cheer, with tales to enthuse us all. We can’t wait to finally see them on the stage”.
The festive show runs throughout December and promises to bring the joy of Christmas direct to the heart of Taunton.
