A LIFE-SIZE cardboard cut-out of Bizet’s fiery virago Carmen is out and about in Scarborough.

It is being used to promote a new production of the French opera at the Stephen Joseph Theatre.

The venue is inviting theatregoers to find the cut-out, take a photo of themselves with it and either post the image on the SJT Facebook page or email it to marketing@sjt.uk.com. The best photos will win tickets for the show.

The cardboard Carmen was modelled by Charlotte Stanley of the SJT Youth Theatre.

Adapted and directed by Chris Monks, the modernised production sees Carmen working in a shopping mall. Drawn to a glamorous footballer but tied to a temperamental ex-soldier, Carmen finds out what it means to live and love beyond the law.

Carmen runs at the SJT until 3 September.
