Talented students at The Vale Academy in Brigg were far from haunted by the past at their latest production .
Actors, singers and musicians, in the form of the Academy Show Band under conductor Jayne Keeler, joined forces as they performed Scrooge, the academy’s 2016 production.
The cast had been busy rehearsing for weeks before giving three public performances and an additional show for feeder primary schools.
The stage show is an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol written in 1843.
Scrooge is the star role and was played by Daniel Smith, with the young Scrooge played by Joshua Taylor
Daniel, from Year 10, said: “I was nervous before the start but really looked forward to the show.
“This was my first major role as a lead since I left primary school.
“Scrooge is miserable though, I suppose I can identify with him. I could feel sorry for him as well when he gets picked on.
“It’s been a great experience and a production we are all proud of.”
Other lead roles were played by Nathan Price as Marley, Millie Tucker as Mrs Cratchit, Aric Tompkinson as Bob Cratchit and Milly Glover as Charlotte Cratchit.
Appreciative audiences of parents and friends made the performances evenings to remember for those on the stage and in the audience.
Deputy head Graham West said: “So much hard work has gone into this production by students and staff, it’s been a great success.”
Production was by Jo Weatherall and Rebecca Carmichael, with set and lighting designed by John Ramsden and costumes by Debbie McLaren.
