Dear Actors, Friends, Subscribers and Supporters
Welcome to the latest Sterts Newsletter.
Suddenly it's autumn... how did that happen?
What a wonderful summer we have had, Sterts has been buzzing and it was great to be able to look out on a nearly full house for shows like Shrek the Musical and Mr Stink. For so many of us 2021 was a taste of normal; without forgetting that for some people it has been nowhere near normal.
Sterts Theatre Co
Shrek the Musical closed to rave reviews and Sold Out performances, this fantastic show was supported by an Arts Council England Recovery Grant and Puckator Ltd and we are hugely grateful to both.
The Hypochondriac has its final performances in September.
We still have shows in the theatre for the next few weeks before we move back into the Studio for the colder weather.
There are still a few tickets left for The Last Night of the Proms on September 11th with Roche Brass, Kate Walker and Sterts Singers hosting the event.
There are also concerts from Rock Meets Brass - St Pinnock Band & Rock Choir Cornwall on Saturday 18th, with The Dave Hankin Band here for an afternoon concert on Sunday 19th. These shows are already on sale and include the new dates for Simon Parker's Poltroon that was postponed by the "pingdemic" at the very last minute in July.
We are also welcoming old friends Madam Renard's who will be the first show in our Studio since February 2020. You can be reassured that everything will be in place to ensure that you are welcomed indoors safely to this performance of Battlecry, a poignant true story of a former soldier fighting PTSD on September 17th.
The October/November season is on sale now and includes an exciting Sterts Theatre Company Studio production of Daphne du Maurier's spooky classic The Birds, a play that has fascinating echoes of the times we live in.
We will also be giving an enthusiastic welcome to CAMP theatre with a double bill of One Act Plays.
After a Covid break our popular Christmas Craft Fair is back in November and we finish off the month with a Studio concert from Sarah McQuaid.
We have a good festive line up for December that will be on sale on our website shortly... watch this space.
