With a cast selected, local theatre group the Kaatza Lakeside Players are already into rehearsals for their Christmas production.

“They’re great! They’re so enthusiast and good listeners,” artistic director Dena McPhee said.

Of the cast of 28 characters, the majority are children.

Making things unique is the family nature of the family-friendly production. Of the cast of 28, 19 have relatives in the production. Fathers and mothers with their children and siblings fill out much of the stage.

“It’s very family-centred, which is very much like the play,” McPhee said.

“It’s a great help, because their parents are here.”

The players’ Thursday, September 29, rehearsal had the stage full of singing faces.

With the actors still sporting scripts at this stage of the game, opening lines were read, while McPhee helped actors mould their characters.

“There’s a lot of dedication here,” Andrew of the Paterson family said.

Andrew, who has appeared in the players’ past two productions, is playing the character of Reverend Hopkins.
