Back in March, Covid clobbered our production of Agatha Christie’s ‘And Then There Were None’ just two weeks before curtain up. We’ve been waiting in vain for a green light to put it on ever since. It’s not how we envisaged our 50th anniversary year unfolding, but we couldn’t let Christmas 2020 slip past without putting on some sort of show for you. So here it is – our ‘potted’ panto, ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. It’s all the best bits of pantomime squeezed into 20 minutes of all-new festive fun, handmade in Coulsdon. The whole show was shot inside three weeks during the November 2020 lockdown, meaning none of the actors were ever in the same place at the same time – as you may just be able to tell! It’s a Christmas miracle of creative editing, and any glaring continuity issues are strictly intentional. You can watch it by simply clicking on the link below.
So pour yourself a glass of mulled wine and pop a mince pie in the oven. Then settle back in your favourite comfy chair beside a roaring fire and press play.
