The panto takes to the stage at Victoria Hall from January 24th – 27th, evening productions are at 7.30 pm and a special Matinee performance takes place on Saturday January 27th at 2.30 pm.

Auditions for CUDOS’ Spring play Don’t Dress For Dinner will begin on Monday February 5th at 7.30 pm in Victoria Hall with Read Through Auditions. Don’t Dress For Dinner is a farce that takes place in a stylishly converted French farmhouse. It promises to be full of hilarious confusion and improvisation, as the mistress is mistaken for a cordon bleu cook and vice a versa. The Spring play will be directed by George Flint and stage managed by Lucy Singleton.
