“A Christmas Cracker” was Bispham CastAways first collaboration with Blackpool charity, Aspire Futures who works with disadvantaged young people. It included a touching festive performance by their young people on the theme of homelessness. It then went on to the adults performing “Mr Scrooge (The Pantomime)” by Brian Luff, with Bispham CastAways being the first group to perform this script! We played host to several Christmas stalls with beautiful wares. There was a Christmas quiz and raffles, including a special raffle for a Sandcastle Family Ticket for the children in the audience. The production was great fun and everyone had a lovely night.
Our very own Scrooge, Tony Woolmington, was nominated for a Best Actor in a Pantomime NODA award in the Region 2 area in 2018.
