The Walford Christmas Show has been beset by problems since the start, with Kathy clashing with the organiser Geraldine Clough. Next week in EastEnders, auditions are held for the new version of the show and the hopefuls find out if they’ve got the part.
In scenes to be broadcast next Tuesday 22 November, Abi, Patrick and Kathy go along to audition for the Walford Player’s adaptation of A Christmas Carol and find that Derek Harkinson (Ian Lavender) is also involved in the production.
Later in the week, the residents learn which parts they have been given in the play as Abi breaks the news in the café.
Will the amateur thespians’ hopes be dashed or will they each get the role of their dreams?
