Nativity play in Kimpton
PUBLISHED: 13:50 27 October 2011
CHRISTMAS might be a few months away yet, but the season’s first nativity play takes place this week.
The Kimpton Players’ production of The Flint Street Nativity opens in the Memorial Hall tonight (Thursday).
Written by Tim Firth, creator of The Calendar Girls, the play follows a class of seven-year-olds who are putting on their annual Nativity Play under the watchful eye of their teacher.
This play wittily and acutely observes the children’s view of their world, especially in their rendition of the traditional carols.
All the usual performance triumphs and disasters are there: costume malfunctions, casting issues, stage fright – even the class pet makes an appearance.
The “children” in this case are played by adults, who later play the parents of the cast of the nativity.
The show will be performed at Kimpton Memorial Hall until Saturday, with nightly performances at 8pm.
Tickets are £6 for the Thursday show, and £8 for both the Friday and Saturday performances.
The box office phone number is 01438 832542.
