They enthusiastically portray a dizzy array of characters from the Dickensian favourite (and a few which aren’t), engineer some novel audience participation while bravely contending with an intrusive PA system and a real Farndale first, rap their vocal cords and feet around two original, show stopping songs.   You would definitely be mad to miss it……….
