Here at the Fair cast


Here At The Fair is Mick Ryans sixth folk opera. It is set at a country fair, in 1850. Travelling showmen and women arrive to set out their stalls. We meet: Vincent Crummles (Mick Ryan), a character from Dickens Nicholas Nickleby. He is an actor manager, who has now fallen on hard times; Crummles daughter, Ninnetta (Alice Jones), who is known to her public as The Infant Phenomenon; Steven Starling (Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne), a reluctant clown, based on the character Sissy Jupe, from Dickens Hard Times; Professor Sleary (Pete Morton), another character from Hard Times. Once the owner of a horse circus, he now runs a flea circus; Madam Lavengro (Heather Bradford), a fortune teller; Doctor Maldini (Geoff Lakeman), a snake oil salesman; John Smith (George Sansome), a ballad seller; and an itinerant fiddler (Lewis Wood.)
