From Beth Irvine's column in the Advertiser: "The FAHETGDS* are back—chopping their way through “A Christmas Carol”! Yes, the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society have rehearsed (though you would scarcely believe it) persistently to prepare their production of Dickens’ “Carol” for your entertainment. The chaos is seamless! It’s so convoluted, how they contrive to wend their way through a single scene, let alone hew through the entire chronicle, that it will drive all other thought from you head. Is there any bit of dialogue where the storyline doesn’t end up scrambled?
In a festive mood, the ladies of the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society mount another assault on the classics with their stage version of A Christmas Carol.
They enthusiastically portray a dizzy array of characters from the Dickensian favorite (and a few which aren't), while bravely contending with an intrusive PA system and a real Farndale first, wrapping their vocal cords and feet around two original, show stopping songs. Sure to get you in the festive mood!
The play is written by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin, Jr and directed by Candy O’Brien.
