Returning with its annual Christmas production at the PRCPA, Tin Whistle is staging a new play that tells the other side of the well-known Dickens Classic. Cratchit is a fascinating exploration of a much-loved classic character, Bob Cratchit.

Harry Giubileo will be taking on the title role after finishing his West End debut in Agatha Christie’s Witness for the Prosecution. Harry will be joined by Ruby Tapp who will be taking part in her sixth Christmas production for Tin Whistle and will be joined by UK-based professional actor Jacob Backhouse who will be performing for the first time in Guernsey. Tin Whistle will bring it’s style to this show ideas to explore in how to tell the other side of the “ghost story of Christmas”, after producing the classic version in 2019 with Brian Webster as Scrooge.

Ticket Types and Pricing:

The world has changed a little bit recently, so we’ve decided to change our ticket pricing structure to try and help a little. For our “in-house” and partner productions, there are some new details you need to know:

“Pay What You Choose”

Inspired by many UK theatres we have chosen to introduce flexible "Pay What You Choose" pricing for shows we produce here and are working with partner organisations to widen this offer. This includes a new and improved concession rate which is not restricted by day of the week, and open to everyone, no questions asked. We do not want cost to be a barrier to attending the theatre and believe everyone in our community would benefit from visiting the PRCPA.

How does it work?

On Pay What You Choose events, when you checkout, you’ll be given a choice of 3 different prices:

• Open Concession – If you don’t have the cash right now, don’t worry; book this rate and let us welcome you with open arms, no questions asked.

• Standard – If you can afford to, please book this rate; the extra money you give will support your theatre and the independent artists and companies on its stages.

• Pay It Forward – If you’re feeling generous and you have the means, please consider choosing this rate. Each Pay It Forward ticket subsidises a concession ticket and helps more people experience the delight of watching live theatre.

All you have to do is select the price bracket that best suits your budget and continue to checkout. Please note all of the seats for this performance have one price band (Price Band A). You will be able to select your concession prices in a 'drop down' box when you get to the payment stage. If in doubt please contact the Box Office on 229999 during our regular working hours.
