Students at the Chadwell Heath campus of New City College will soon be taking to the stage to perform their Christmas show Santa’s Lost His Reindeer.

Patrick O’Sullivan, head of performing arts, said: “The show promises to be full of fun and laughter for young audiences and will be a truly magical piece of children’s theatre.

Students will tell the story, which was also written by them, through song, puppetry, speech and dance.

It is set to be performed at the college’s own theatre, the Box Theatre, which seats 264 people.

Three performances are being given this side of Christmas on Thursday 14th December at 8pm and Saturday 16th December at 10am and 12pm

Tickets are now on sale for £5 and can be booked online at the college’s website at .
