Dear Actors, Friends, Subscribers and Supporters 

 

Welcome to Sterts' October Newsletter.

 

What a strange feeling... we don't have any more re-arranged shows to catch up with. It was great to finally see Poltroon on stage; when the idea was put forward for Sterts to stage the play it was called Endless Summer and was going to be performed in July 2019. The final result was Poltroon; a triumph enjoyed by all who saw it.

 

Another milestone was Madam Renard's powerful and emotionally draining Battlecry which was the first public event in our Studio since March 2020 

 


Coming Up

Although we are having a little rest and taking a deep breath there are still shows for you to enjoy in October.

If you are looking for an interesting and unusual entertainment this weekend why not go along to Duchy College in Stoke Climsland for Heaven's Thunder, a spectacular culmination of a three year community project including horses, music, theatre and dance and featuring members of Sterts Singers in the choir.

Our In House theatre company are putting on a Studio production of The Birds, Conor McPherson's adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's short story set in Cornwall... (not California, that was Alfred Hitchcock's idea), this will run Wednesday- Saturday 20th-23rd October.

The following week we are also hosting two Studio performances of Double Trouble, CAMP Theatre's autumn touring show featuring one act plays from John Mortimer & Harold Pinter.

 

Looking Ahead

Looking further ahead we are hoping to be able to announce a fantastic musical theatre production called "All Together Now" which will be for one night only in November, we are just finalising details of this and it will be on our website very soon.

 

Also in November we are bringing back two regular events that were curtailed by the pandemic. On 7th November there will be a Games Day in the cafe/conservatory. For a small fee you can come along and be introduced to the amazing and varied world of Board Games. The cafe will be open for home cooked snacks and cakes. The Craft Fair  on 21st November will be bigger and better than ever and we have many, many stalls across the site including Woody's Belly Boards, Phil Croft's sideline when he's not directing Shrek!

 

On 28th of November we welcome back award winning Cornwall based singer Sarah McQuaid at the end of an international tour.

       

We have a good festive line up for December that will be on sale on our website in the next few days... watch this space.
