After four years of great success with performing war themed plays each November to commemorate the centenary of WW1, Neston Players are taking a rather different approach for winter 2019. An 11 strong cast will perform the popular The Flint Street Nativity by Tim Firth from Wednesday 4th December 2019 – Saturday 7th December 2019.
The director is Carole Goodwin, a face people may recognise from treading the boards with Neston Players over the years in performances such as: ‘A Walk Through Time’, ‘Enchanted April’, ‘The Odd Couple’ and last years ‘Delval Divas’. Carole has been passionate about Neston Players performing The Flint Street Nativity for a few years now as she believes the Neston audience will thoroughly enjoy this witty and festive play. Carole is joined by a fabulous cast.
The Flint Street Nativity is from the author of Calendar Girls and Neville’s Island and offers audiences a guaranteed evening of laughter and fun. The story focuses on Mrs Horrocks class as they prepare for their Christmas Nativity, some are reluctant performers, others determined to be the star of the show. Frankincense is worried about being sent to the special unit, Gabriel is desperate to be Mary and Herod just wants to play Question of Sport. This ensemble piece acted by adults shows the innocent fun, chaos and sheer exuberance of children let loose on the stage! When the parents arrive we see just why some of the children behave as they do!
You are sure to laugh out loud at this fantastic festive piece.
