We’re ‘dreaming of a White Christmas’, sing care home visitors


Colten Care-Care Industry NewsResidents and team members at a Dorset dementia care home had an early taste of Yuletide cheer when they attended a production of Irving Berlin’s classic musical White Christmas.


The ten-strong group, from Colten Care’s Fernhill home in Longham, enjoyed a matinee show by the company Theatre 2000 at the Regent Centre in Christchurch.


The visit was organised after Karen Grant A’Court, Activity Organiser at the home, was invited to perform as a singer and dancer.  She also had a small principal part playing the character Tessie.


Fellow Activity Organiser Ann Marie Knight said: “We all enjoyed the trip to watch Karen on stage. It was a wonderful afternoon full of singing, dancing, comedy, colourful costumes and scenery.”


After the performance the visitors took the chance to meet cast members.


The White Christmas production was dedicated to ‘Bertie’ Brown, founder of Theatre 2000, and produced by Paul Bower.


Theatre 2000’s next show is Hairspray which will have a run at the Regent Centre from Wednesday 4th to Saturday 7th March 2015.
