A time-travelling ghost-story set in Pendeen
This stunning production takes place at The Centre, Newlyn from 1st – 2nd March 2019 with shows at 7.30pm and an additional matinee on Saturday 2nd at 2.00pm.
Adapted from the children’s novel ‘The Fate of Jeremy Visick’ (David Wiseman) by Judith Nicholls, this musical tells the story of Matthew and his family who have recently moved back to Pendeen from London. Although Matthew’s father is Cornish by birth, his son does not find the transition from London life easy and the local children, with the exception of Lily Thomas, are far from welcoming. School is boring and largely irrelevant until Matthew is set a ‘rubbish’ homework project by history teacher Mr Williams and suddenly finds himself in the middle of a mystery surrounding a mining accident of long ago as two worlds collide and two boys are drawn together across time.
With a sensational score by our very own musical director David Shields, this compelling story will have you laughing and clapping one minute and on the edge of your seats reaching for your handkerchief the next, as the boys journey together through the dangerous 19th-century subterranean world of Wheal Pawles.
Our very talented cast are well into rehearsals and from oldest to youngest are thoroughly enjoying this opportunity to embrace and showcase our local heritage. The roles of Matthew Clemens and Jeremy Visick are in the hands of talented and experienced young actors Reuben Squires and Vinny Pyrah, supported by Lauren Foster Wilton as Lily, Anton Saunders and Marie Foster as Paul and Sue Clemens and Chris Blewett and Shelby Kessell as Reuben and Minnie Visick.
