After the Crouch End Festival

We thoroughly enjoyed participating in the 2016 Crouch End Festival. 

This year, we managed to rise to the logistical challenge of co-ordinating a hectic  rehearsal schedule, developing, and eventually, performing 5 different shows!

We  would like to thank all our venues for hosting our productions, the festival organisers and, of course, the hundreds of people who came along to see us! 

Special thanks to our hosts:



As a community group, we are committed to offering our festival shows to our audiences free of charge, to thank you for supporting our shows the rest of the year. 

We are so delighted that so many of you chose to come along.

Coming up next

We are now looking forward to our annual picnic and  our next AGM as well as planning our next productions. 

In the meantime we are taking advantage of some exciting acting training workshops from director Kate Stafford to keep us on our toes!

Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for news as it happens.
