ALL THE LATEST NEWS, VIEWS AND STORIES FROM AROUND YOUR LOCAL AREA:JANUARY/FEBRUARY Our Juniors bring


Barnum's Circus from Screen to Stage


You’ve seen the film adaptation, now watch the


spectacle live on stage Running at the Carnegie Theatre, Workington from 7th February - 10th February


Following the release of the latest film adaptation The Greatest Showman, Workington Amateur Operatic Society's Junior Section are pleased to bring the spectacle of the circus live to the Carnegie stage in their 2018 production of BARNUM.


After proudly accepting two National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) Awards for sell-out performances of 2016’s Les Misérables and mastering the skill to skate live on stage in 2017’s Starlight Express, this year WAOS Juniors are eager to add to their skill set and take on yet another demanding challenge.


Our budding youngsters are once again ready to hit the stage after spending rehearsal time immersed in circus life, learning various performer skills and exploring unique, varied and wonderful big top characters.


Following in the footsteps of Michael Crawford (1986), Brian Conley (2014/15) and Hugh Jackman (2017), last year’s male lead Andy White plays the man of the hour and master of illusion and humbug, Mr. Barnum. Jasmin Smith takes on her WAOS Juniors acting debut with the strong yet caring role of Mrs. Chairy Barnum, alongside Jack McNicholas as the Ringmaster, Amelia Crawford as Jenny Lind and Daniel Dixon as Julius Goldschmidt. Not forgetting, of course, our colourful circus folk including Amber Cartmell as Joice Heth, the 160- year-old woman and General Tom Thumb played by Jack Hawley.


Join the circus this February and discover the mystery and magic behind one of the world’s most fabulously fascinating shows and help us once again to bring another showstopper to life.


Performances run daily from 7th-10th February and tickets are available now from the Carnegie Box Office on 01900 602122, or visit www.carnegietheatre.co.uk


Book early to avoid disappointment!

This February, Wyldwood Drama Group bring their seventh show ‘Throne’ to the Kirkgate Centre for two consecutive nights


This ever-evolving group of youngsters will be performing an original play written and directed for their first time by Morgan Goodfellow and Arthur Hill, aided by Wyldwood original lmogen Barnfather, featuring a mixture of new and regular Wyldwood performers.


This contemporary play, is a new area for the Wyldwood actors, who hope it will please their regular followers, as well as attract a new audience.


ln a time of political unrest and industrial progress, the rift between the Mortal world and that of the ancient Gods, looking down upon their creations in disgust widens with every passing day. When their fragile lives collide, and the lives of each immortal ruler is thrown out of place. It seems not even the bonds of family can prevent the inevitable destruction of one mighty race.


Tickets available from The Kirkgate Centre for Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th February


Keep an eye out for the summer production, featuring the return of a large number of senior members of Wyldwood.
