Ten sleeps to go!

There are just 10 sleeps until we open our Christmas cracker, Season’s Greetings! There are hand rails a-plenty in this season’s show.  Just as well in case any of the characters “go method” on the seasonal spirits!

Full of Christmas cheers!

'Allo 'Allo, what's going on 'ere then?

Welcome to 2019, dear reader. Don’t be deceived by a lack of blog activity lately; we have been busy rehearsing ‘Allo ‘Allo. There is at least one thing in this country related to Europe that is going well… It’s hard work, being an actor, but someone has to do it!
