“It’s a great place to be and The Albert Halls is a stunning location here that I’ve seen a few times.
“And it’s good to see the children loving it too.
“It’s good to be back after Covid as well, putting on these shows in time for Christmas is exhilarating and we’re excited to see the children love it.”
The show runs till January 1 for those who may not have time before the big day.
Connie said: “The Albert Halls in Bolton is so beautiful, I’ve come here and I love it.
“The structure of the building is gorgeous, and we have so much fun rehearsing and performing here.
“Bolton seems like a friendly place and even going outside to Le Mans Crescent, it’s all such a pretty place but I love the markets the most.”
