A Seussified Christmas Carol – ENROLMENTS OPENING

A whimsical reinvention of Dickens’ most beloved Christmas story in wacky rhymed couplets. With zoot fruited juices and binka bird geese, from Bed-Headed Fred to Timmy Loo Hoo, this tale of glorious holiday cheer is similar to something Dr. Seuss might have come up with – if he ever had his way with the story.

Enrolments open SUNDAY, 18th of September at 5PM

How to enrol is shared in the below information.

We are ONLY taking 2 casts of 15 for this production. Anyone who wishes to enrol (first in first served), please make sure your child is able to attend EVERY date listed below. Please note the SUNDAY REHEARSALS & PERFORMANCE SEASON DATES & TIMES.

DIRECTOR: EVIE MARTIN

As well as being a very accomplished and diverse performer, Evie has also acted as an impromptu assistant director to Tim Maddren since 2019.
Evie’s ability to lead, inspire a large team and build a production in a constantly safe, supportive and kind way has earned her the honour of directing this production.
We are very proud to be announcing her as one of our directors for this production.

Over that time she has performed in 8 separate productions with the GYB team.Although only 15 years old, Caitlyn is a highly competent and excellent performer in all three disciplines of Singing, Dancing & Acting – a true triple threat. Caitlyn also holds a very strong and innate comedic eye.
Caitlyn’s leadership ability has garnered her a deep respect within the entire G.Y.B family. Her most recent leadership credit is as Choreographer on ‘The Jungle Book KIDS’ and Director on ‘The Internet is a Distract – OH LOOK A KITTEN!.’ We are very proud to have Caitlyn, once again, return to this production as its Director.

She has grown into a fantastic and well rounded performer in her own right. Ellie holds a gentle leadership style, that all respect and listen to. Be it on a surf beach, or in a rehearsal room, Ellie appears to us to be unflappable. We are so proud to have Ellie on board for this production.

A kindhearted and dedicated person, Indiana has best exemplified her passion through her contributions as part of the major technical crew members for our most recent production, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Jr; here she discovered her love for all aspects of the creative process, on and off stage.
The organisational genius with a heart of gold! We couldn’t be happier Indiana will be on this production.
