Rudolph and Frostie kick off festive shows in Highgate

The stars of Christmas - including Rudolph, Frostie, Buddie the Elf and the Sugar Plum Fairy - are out in force this festive season.

Actors (from left) Laura Beth Mortemore, David Moss, Joshua Dean Perry and Ziggie Sky Ward got into character for the Christmas Cake Show - at the start of a series of seasonal shows at Lauderdale House in Highgate Hill, Highgate.

The graduates from the Islington based Musical Theatre Academy started the three-day programme on Monday, which was spear-headed by the venue’s arts education officer Gemma Derici.

It also included a day in residence by one of London’s top five Santas, as judged by Time Out, and a workshop to make Christmas items like chocolate mice and snowmen bookmarks. It will finish with an old-fashioned carol singalong tomorrow from 5pm.

General manager Katherine Ives said: “Gemma loves to make learning as fun as possible and the range of Christmas activities certainly demonstrates this.”
