The group staged A Christmas Carol at The Playhouse in High Street from November 12-17 before taking the show to The Theatre Royal, in Windsor, for a week-long run.

Audiences totalling around 3,000 people watched the nine performances.

Singer Marvin ‘The Jazzman’ Muoneke, who graduated from UCW in 2017 and reached the semi-finals of this year’s Britain’s Got Talent, took on the role of the Ghost Of Christmas Present.

UCW students Chrystal Bliss and Becky Petrie played the Ghost Of Christmas Past and the Ghost Of Christmas Future respectively.
