Viva to perform Goodnight Mister Tom at Soham Village College
PUBLISHED: 16:26 04 October 2018
Viva will bring Goodnight Mister Tom to life in Soham at the end of October.
Viva present two very different but popular productions this autumn.
Goodnight Mister Tom will take to the stage at the end of October.
The well-loved tale of two broken souls at different ends of the age scale celebrates the value of love and proves that friendship has no barriers. Set during the dark and dangerous times of World War II, it follows sad young William Beech, who is evacuated to the idyllic English countryside and builds a remarkable and moving friendship with the elderly recluse, Tom Oakley.
The production features local children as young as 10 and adults of all ages. During rehearsals the cast and crew welcomed a local evacuee to talk to them about her experience of being evacuated from London to Dorset.
Goodnight Mister Tom is at Soham Village College’s Performing Arts Centre, on October 25, 26 and 27. Performances begin at 7.30pm with an additional matinee performance on Saturday 27 at 2.30pm. Tickets are £12.50/ £11.50 for over 60s and £10.50 for under 12s.
The Friday evening performance has already sold out.
