Join us at the Crouch End Festival


STOP PRESS... STOP PRESS... STOP PRESS

Due to circumstances beyond our control, Grace & Agnes will now take place on Saturday 15th June at KISS THE SKY, and not at St James. 

LOTS OF FESTIVAL FUN IN JUNE

As well as bringing you a hilarious comedy based on an Oscar Wilde story this May - Lord Arthur Savile's Crime (at Moravian Church Hall from Wed 22 to Sat 25 May, wegottickets.com - see post below for details), we are also mounting not one, not two, but FOUR productions as our contribution to the Crouch End Festival! We like to keep busy here at the Crouch End Players!

Following the huge success of our sell-out Festival shows last year, we are once again running a reservation list for each show... It's FREE to get in to each, but as capacity is limited, those who have reserved a place in advance will receive priority, and after that it will be first-come, first served for any places available on the day...


Just email crouchendplayers@hotmail.com with the date, title and time of the show you wish to attend, and we'll write back to confirm that you're on the list...

So without further ado, here is what is in store from the Crouch End Players in June

Once Upon A Story Time!
Come and hear two classic children's stories - Ludwig Bemelmans’ Madeline and In The Night Kitchen by Maurice Sendak - brought to life with unique imagery and narration by the Crouch End Players. Follow the adventures of two delightful characters: Little Madeline, who finds herself being rushed to a hospital in Paris to have her appendix taken out, and Mickey, who falls dreamily from his bed into ‘the night kitchen’, where the bakers are busy stirring, scraping, mixing and baking, so we can ‘all have cake in the morning’!
Recommended for ages 3-6 years.

Lights, Camera, Action… Sing!
A whistle-stop, song-filled history of musicals on the silver screen.
From The Jazz Singer to Les Misérables, calling at all points in between. Let our assorted cast of characters take you on a musical journey from the sublime to the ridiculous. A comical and affectionate, ‘star’-studded revue. The show's running time is about an hour, and there will  time to stay on and enjoy hits from the musicals after the shows...
