We are thrilled to announce that we have been granted permission by Brendan O'Carroll (aka Agnes Brown) and Stephen McCrum (BBC producer of Mrs Brown's Boys) to stage four performances of the two Christmas 2012 episodes of Mrs Brown's Boys - Mammy Christmas & The Virgin Mammy. We believe we are one of only two companies to be given this honour to date - quite some achievement.
Brendan is very keen to support projects that involve or benefit young people. His company have very generously donated £250 toward production costs. All profits from staging the show will go toward funding our Easter Drama Workshops (SCADS) and we plan to involve older teenagers in key elements of the production such as lighting, sound, ticketing, set building etc.
This is a very exciting venture, not just for Tennyson Players but for the community as a whole and The Dunes Complex, where it will be staged. We will be seeking the support and involvement of as many local people as possible so that they can be part of making it a success.
Below you will see a timeline of things that will be happening between February and November, when the show will be staged.
