LimeLight to stage two Christmas shows
Award-winning LimeLight Productions, who are winning a good reputation in Llangollen for their musical theatre and drama productions, have unveiled details of their two Christmas productions.
One is original drama written and directed by Peter Read which, after its launch at Llangollen Town Hall goes on a semi-professional tour.
The second it a musical spectacular featuring the Carl Jones Dancers and John Durham and his Rat Pack repertoire.
The first show, A Dickens of an Evening, is on at the Town Hall on Friday and Saturday, November 14 and 15 at 7.30pm
Depicting the life of Charles Dickens, it shows the great author celebrating Christmas with his friends.
There are visitations from ghosts, haunted men, Christmas trees coming to life, plus lots of festive joy.
But beneath the jollity, and the undercurrents, Dickens's private life is always near the surface.
As they act out The Battle of Life it is clear that the plot of two sisters loving the same man mirrors his own life. And there is also Ellen Ternan, the secret lover, hovering in the wings.
The second production, Christmas in the Limelight, on Friday, December 5 at 7.30pm, offers a wealth of musical theatre and much-loved songs in a cabaret-style setting.
LimeLight features music from their forthcoming 2015 production Fiddler On The Roof, along with some beautiful dancing accompanying the singers and solo pieces from the Carl Jones Dancers.
John Durham, a professional vocalist, joins the cast as host singing songs from his Rat Pack collection. Fellow host is the well-known John Clifford.
LimeLight are offering discounted seats for those booking tickets for both shows.
Tickets are £8 and £6.50 concessions with group discounts available. They are available by calling the box office on 01978 351315/07504031029, or from Llangollen Tourist Information Centre.
