We welcome our brand-new children's cast as they join the company of A Christmas Carol, including the four young actors playing Tiny Tim.
Meet the four children who will appear as Tiny Tim alongside Adrian Edmondson (who plays Scrooge) in our forthcoming production of Dickens’ classic festive tale, A Christmas Carol.
The role of Tiny Tim will be shared by Jasiri Brown (aged 9), Gracie Coates (aged 7), Jasper Dance (aged 11), and Alexander Joseph (aged 11).
Jasiri, who has a limb difference, is a successful model, and has previously taken part in several modelling campaigns, TV work and commercials. A Christmas Carol is his professional debut as a child actor. His interests are playing football, video games, reading and playing basketball.
Gracie, who has cerebral palsy, is making her professional theatre debut. She loves to perform and was previously in a Lego commercial to celebrate International Day of The Girl.
Jasper, who has lower limb differences and mobility problems, loves drama, swimming, cooking, table tennis and is always singing. A Christmas Carol is his professional debut.
Alexander, who has juvenile arthritis and other medical conditions, loves music producing, singing, acting and dancing. Last year he performed in The Wonderful at Theatre Peckham.
