The Offord Players (TOPS), in partnership with the Friends of St Peter’s Church, are presenting A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens in the wonderful and atmospheric venue of St Peter’s Church in Offord Darcy.
There will be five evening performances, from January 24-28, all starting at 7pm.
This ambitious production was first performed in St Peter’s Church in November 1997 and involved a cast of 18 adults and 12 children, with 30 on the production team. Sarah Hogben, directed the first production and will take on the role again.
TOPS have been performing plays for more than 20 years, with many of its founding members still building sets, treading the boards, making props and in some cases doing all of those things.
“We are very fortunate to attract talent from all around with new younger members coming from within the local villages and much further afield,” said
