A Ray of Hope

Drama and Theatre Club’s Christmas play told the story of the Johnsons – six tearaway siblings who managed to find out that the local youth club was staging a nativity.  With a reputation for bad behaviour, the Johnsons presence made rehearsals rather ‘interesting’!  Narrated by local police officers and supported by an assorted cast of characters including parents, RSPCA officers, youth club kids and the Johnson’s ferocious one-eyed dog, A Ray of Hope brought home the true meaning of Christmas.  By the time the youth club reached the end of its nativity, the Johnsons were reformed characters, with Shirley Johnson proclaiming that: ‘….misery and suffering will be words to be forgotten, forever.  This comes to pass when a child is born.’
