Thanks to everyone who came to meet Tree & Tree (aka Becki Gerrard & Fiona Manson) at the Tall & True Tree Nursery (aka Cumbernauld Theatre). We had a wonderful time transforming the studio and training up over 1,300 little pine trees this festive season in our sell-out run. Thanks to everyone who made it possible – all the brilliant staff at Cumbernauld; our amazing stage manager Linsey Johnstone; our great producers – Sarah Gray & Cat Tyre; composer-extraordinaire Greg Sinclair; always in-demand designer Claire Halleran; and lightning-fast lighting designer Kate Bonney.
This was the first time Cumbernauld Theatre had experimented with producing an early years show alongside their panto and we hope they feel it’s a successful model to repeat. Christmas is always a busy and important time for theatres to boost sales, but it’s obviously important that audiences of all-ages can access high-quality work that caters to their needs.
