A Christmas Carol at Scarborough’s Market Hall

Students from PQA Scarborough blew audiences away last weekend as they performed their production of A Christmas Carol in an incredible but rather unusual setting.


Students have spent the last term working with their fantastic Comedy & Drama teacher Kirsty on this performance.

Our Comedy & Drama classes are designed to explore the many theatrical forms and performance techniques in a fun, engaging environment.

Students were able to experiment with new theatre styles and create exciting, dynamic pieces for the stage whilst working on this performance. We chose not to set the production on a traditional stage but take the performance into the incredible Scarborough Market Hall. This beautiful building seemed the perfect place to house such a iconic text with it’s incredible architecture but slightly creepy feel!

All students rose to the occasion and ended both of their performances with a standing ovation from their audience.

Team PQA were extremely proud of their hard work and are looking forward to seeing everybody back in January to continue with work on their next performance… Legally Blonde!
