Flying Pickle Performing Arts is delighted to announce the return of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens to Normansfield Theatre. We are presenting our solo-show on Saturday 16th December 2023. There are two performances, starting at 3PM and 7:30PM. A Christmas Carol is performed by Flying Pickle’s own Sam Devereaux. The show is directed by our Head of Theatre, Georgie Devereaux. Tickets are priced at £10/£7.50 Conc. You can book yours here.
Normansfield Theatre is an authentic, stunningly beautiful Victorian theatre in Teddington. Following much restoration work over the years the theatre has recently reopened for Theatrical use and today stages a broad range of productions and events. The Grade II* listed building is also home to the largest collection of fully restored Victorian scenery in the UK. Part of the Langdon Down Centre and HQ to the Down’s Syndrome Association, this intimate space is the perfect setting for a night of Christmas entertainment.
Sam draws on his 20+ years of acting experience, which includes narrating more than 100 audiobooks, to bring Dickens classic festive tale to life all by himself. Georgie has 25 years of experience working on major productions at some of the best known theatres in the UK. She uses this extraordinary level of experience and know how to bring the staging to life for this unusual and engaging re-telling of perhaps the best known English Christmas story of all time.
The Show is Presented to Support the Down’s Syndrome Association
This year one hundred percent of the ticket and bar sales will benefit the Down’s Syndrome Association:
The Down’s Syndrome Association is the only charity in the UK providing support for all aspects of Down’s syndrome. Our aim is to enable people who have Down’s syndrome to live full and rewarding lives. We believe in a society which values every member. Communities will be stronger when every member has the opportunity to thrive. We believe that people who have Down’s syndrome should be fully included in their communities. Our vision is to see people who have Down’s syndrome living healthy and meaningful lives in the community.
Flying Pickle’s mission is to sell all 120 tickets and benefit this amazing charity as much as we possibly can. Help us to reach our goal by joining us for A Christmas Carol on Saturday 16th December and letting Sam tell you a Christmas story you know well in a very different way!
