A new community drama group is supporting the hospice.
Friends At Barton is a new community drama group based in Barton-upon-Humber.
Founded by West End actor Paul Tate, who was born in Scunthorpe General and raised in Barton, they are delighted to be the resident drama group for a new performance space called The Joseph Wright Hall (formerly The Salvation Army Citadel), on Queen Street.
The group came about through Paul (pictured left) gathering together old school friends and local performers, and Paul’s good friend, the Eastenders and Gavin & Stacey actor Larry Lamb, is its patron.
The very first production is A Christmas Carol, and is being performed in aid of Andy’s at St Andrew’s Hospice, and other local charities, all of which have special importance to cast members.
Tickets, costing just £5, are selling fast for the production, which is being staged from December 5 to December 7 at 7.30pm nightly. Don’t miss out and book yours today by calling 01652 635172.
Paul is currently juggling three jobs. He is in An Inspector Calls in the West End, rehearsing the cast of A Christmas Carol on Sundays and Mondays, and preparing to play the dame in Aladdin at Hartlepool! Phew!
