The annual christmas production...

is a great way for young performers to get experience in front of an audience and have a wonderful time in the spirit of Christmas.

Following the success of The Fairytale Channel (Winner of Canberra Area Theatre Award for Best Original Work, 2014), this year we present The Christmas Channel - a comedic pastiche of various entertainments one might see on the television at Christmas. Told through the frame narrative of a family fighting over the remote control, the show will feature short scenes from classic Christmas films, entertainments and advertisements. Think The Nutcracker, A Christmas Carol, The Snowman, Songs of Praise, the Coke Advert and more. Actors, singers and dancers ages 6-19 are required, with an exciting range of roles available.

Show: Wednesday 20th - Sat 23rd December, 6pm + 2pm matinee on Saturday. Courtyard Theatre @ Canberra Theatre
Rehearsals: Sunday afternoons/evenings October 29 - December 17th in the city + Tech/dress Monday 18th Dec at theatre
