Review: Lavender Hill Mob Theatre Company, A Christmas Story, Corn Exchange, King's Lynn

By Lynn News Reporter

Once again first class, seasonal entertainment for all ages, was in plentiful supply at Lynn’s Corn Exchange when The Lavender Hill Mob Theatre Company presented their latest show: ‘A Christmas Story’.

The show consisted of sketches and dance numbers, and also went back to past Christmas’s in 1939, 1959, 1979 and 1999.

The show was written by stalwart Les Miles and compered with wit and aplomb by director of acting, John Wrigley and choreographer/ambassador, Jamie John.

There was plenty of audience participation, and at the performance I attended, with my enthusiastic guest, pupils from Hunstanton Primary School, enjoyed the theatrical limelight for a while! At another performance pupils from Eastgate School, Lynn enjoyed all the fun!

It was great to sing along and clap to numbers such as The Santa Stomp, Matchstalk Men and Matchstalk Cats and Dogs, Winter Song and the Company’s very own original and hilarious version of The Twelve Days of Christmas. Thanks, Tim Rock for melodious musical direction.

Another success. I look forward to Dick Whittington next spring!
