WITH Christmas fast approaching and the annual festive season panic already beginning to set in, Donna O’Connor, star of the festive comedy ‘A Christmas Night With George’, has some top tips for seasonal survival.
From Tuesday, December 18 - Saturday, January 5 audiences at Theatre at The Mill, Newtownabbey will see Donna’s character Bridie Murphy light up the Christmas tree and take her stolen cardboard cut-out of George Clooney on a fun grown-up fairytale journey of a different kind as she tells the hilarious tales of her Christmases past, present and future, with sharp humour and classic songs.
Donna thinks everyone needs the following to survive Christmas:
• A tool kit to assemble children’s toys that you didn’t know would come in hundreds of separate pieces.
• Loads of woolly jumpers because let’s face it, it’s Norn Iron’ and it’s probably going to be ‘baltic’!
• A cheesy Christmas CD to play in the car or while wrapping presents to get you in the festive spirit.
• Extra sellotape because it always seems to run out in the middle of wrapping.
• Several bottles of wine in bags under the tree in the event of unexpected visitors bearing gifts.
• A rechargeable battery - so you can keep going and going and going and going.
• A Belfast Martini (aka Vodka and coke) to calm you nerves.
• A ticket to see ‘A Christmas Night With George’ to sit back, relax have a hilarious night out with friends and loved ones.
