Dear Actors, Friends, Subscribers and Supporters
Welcome to Sterts December Newsletter.
We are very grateful to be the recipient of a third Arts Council Recovery Fund grant and this has allowed us to stage an extended Christmas programme and also to fund pre-planning for summer 2022.
We have a mixture of shows for you this month and there is hopefully something for everyone.
Baba Yaga and Squashbox are for the children, Twisted Christmas is not for the children and features stories and sketches about how to buy the perfect gift for your unloved ones, the dark side of Christmas cracker jokes, and one woman’s maniacal plot to murder Santa Claus!
For those whose taste is for a traditional Christmas we have Christmas at the Musicals and Singers Candlelit Christmas. Sterts are also hosting the Christingle service from St John's church in Pensilva, there is no charge to attend but you are asked to book your place with firstname.lastname@example.org.
THESE ARE ALL THEATRE SHOWS so you need to dress up warm.
