We are hoping to perform Thursday 8th December at 7pm for family. Each child will be given 4 tickets free of charge

We have been enjoying role playing some traditional tale characters in preparation for our big summer production of a St Christophers version of Into the Woods. Miss Hargreaves will soon be casting some big parts and working alongside Mr Hints to add great song and dance. We have a tough job to top Peter Pan, but I am confident we can do it.

 Its great to see some new faces!!

We are in the process of working very hard on our next production. We will be performing a St Christopher’s version of the musical ‘Into the Woods’, a classic tale with a twist.
