Noel Coward is a master playwright and this is one of his best loved comedies.

The family pantomime this year was home grown and based on the evergreen story by Charles Dickens. It was enjoyed by the audience and the cast had a great deal of fun rehearsing and performing this seasonal show.

Our musical this year was the ever popular Wizard of Oz. It is now remembered as the last time we saw John Sangster on our stage. John will be greatly missed. We were all deeply shocked by his untimely death. Good looking men, who can sing, dance and act are rare, but John was a great comic and a talented scene painter. His boundless energy and whirlwind personality will by sadly missed.

Neil Simon described his play as an ‘elegant farce’. He added, “There is something about having them dressed in evening clothes, as a counterpoint to the chaos about them”.
