Christmas is in the Air as Wyong Musical Theatre Company presents the Christmas musical, A Ghost Tale for
Mr Dickens Jr.
Presented by performers aged from 8 – 18, this show is an adaptation of book #44 of Mary Pope Osborne’s award winning fantasy adventure books from the Magic Tree House book series.
Be transported back to the beautiful foggy streets of Victorian London as the magic tree house whisks Jack and Annie back in time to meet the famous, well-off author, Charles Dickens, who has a severe case of the writer’s block. Jack and Annie also witness the hardships faced by the poor, and their efforts to help only land them in prison. Mr. Dickens rescues Jack and Annie, and they, in turn, help him escape the sad memories that haunt him. In the process, they inspire Mr. Dickens to write one of the greatest holiday stories of all time.
Throughout the course of the show we learn the importance of charity and kindness through friendship and understanding. What perfect things to reflect upon this Christmas season.
This musical is a fantasy adventure filled with wonderful songs and dances to celebrate the magic of Christmas! It’s a unique twist on a famous holiday tale, great for the entire family and a perfect start to the festive season!
A Ghost Tale for Mr Dickens Jr is Directed by Nilzen Lumsden, Musical Direction by Russell Hull and Choreographed by Kate Pareaux, all supported by a strong production team.
Show Dates 7th – 16th December with matinee and evening performances.
