Christmas at McLean-Williams 2021

In the most recent Christmas season, several of our clients performed in Christmas shows in theatres across the UK.

Cassidy Little co-starred as Doc Swain in Bunkamura’s Wendy and Peter Pan, which ran at the Leeds Playhouse from the 25th of November to the 22nd of January.

In this retelling of JM Barrie’s childhood classic, it places Wendy at the centre rallying her allies Peter Pan, The Lost Boys, Tink and Tiger Lily to her side and takes down Captian Hook and his band of pirates. For more information click here

Jacob Butler starred as Jack in Jack and the Beanstalk at the Stephen Joseph theatre in Scarborough which ran from the 3rd to the 31st of December.

In this retelling of the classic English fairy tale, it follows a young school-kid named Jack who has accidentally started the rumour that a terrible hideous giant has made his home in a castle above the skies of Scarborough. It all seems to be pure make-believe, until one night an immense beanstalk sprouts from his grandma’s garden. For more information click here

Amelie Leroy was part of the nostalgic Belle Époque spectacular Circus 1903, which ran at the Southbank Centre in London from the 16th of December to the 2nd of January.

Complete with daredevil stunts and mesmerising puppetry from the same team behind War Horse, it promises to amaze and astound audiences as they are transported back to the Golden Age of the circus. For more information click here

Chanel McKenzie joined the cast of Truestory Theatre’s Blu and the Magic Web, which ran at the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts in Brighton from the 9th to the 31st of December.

From the company behind Brighton’s acclaimed A Christmas Carol at the Spire, it follows Blu who wakes up to find that all the children in their village have disappeared. As Blu explores the cobweb-filled woods near their village, they encounter beloved fairytale stalwarts like Red Riding Hood, Hansel & Gretel and Rapunzel as well as brand new characters.

Elloise Thomson starred in A Christmas Carol: A Live Radio Play at Birmingham’s Old Joint Stock Theatre which ran from the 10th to the 24th of December.

This experimental telling of Dicken’s defining wintertime tale takes the form of a live 1940s-style radio broadcast complete with vintage commercials, live music and special effects as a company of actors tells the story of the curmudgeonly Ebenezer Scrooge learning the meaning of Christmas from the spirits of its past, present and future.
