IT'S Dickens, but not as we know him.

Next weekend Biggar High's talented young thespians will perform their very own take on the seasonal A Christmas Carol.

A Christmas Carol: The Show Must Go On is the hilarious story of corny young performers from Lamington.

The struggling drama group with big ambitions are keen to rescue their reputation following their disastrous 2016 production of Joseph and the Tricolour Bathrobe.

Their 2017 mission is to deliver Charles Dickens’ classic ghost story to the people of Biggar.

However, with only one month to rehearse and a crazy director, can this band of misfit actors pull it off on the night?

Follow Ebenezer Scrooge as he journeys on a path of redemption through this festive comedy of errors.

A Christmas Carol: The Show Must Go On features over 20 Biggar High pupils.

On both Friday and Saturday, December 15 and 16, audiences at the Corn Exchange can expect thrills, spills and grasshoppers.

Both shows start at 7.30pm, and tickets, priced at £8 and £6, are still available from Brownlies of Biggar and at
