"We did see a Christmas Carol and all unanimously said it was one of the best Christmas shows we have ever seen!" - Helen McElhone "On Sunday we came to see Christmas Carol at the Lakeside theatre, the trip having been organised by Rainbows and it was absolutely fantastic! The three actors and the person running the special effects lighting/film clips were brilliant. The performance was at once sophisticated and simple, enjoyable for adults and children, with no compromises. We loved it and have already recommended it, great entertainment, great value and actually had the audience laughing out loud - thank you very much." Jacqui Peet "Not long home since watching Christmas Carol at your 1pm performance. Congratulations on a brilliant show. Really great theater and very entertaining. Only two of us could make it today but so good going to have to come watch again with the whole family. Love it! Thank you. " - Celina Ablewhite
