CKCP Live Show is coming – Let Us Be Merry 2021!!
Let Us Be Merry, our popular Christmas Show, will take place at St Mary’s Church, Charlton Kings on Saturday 4 December 2021 at 2.30 pm. Doors open at 2.00 pm. Tickets are £5.00 payable on the door. An audience maximum of 120 will apply and you are encouraged to wear a mask and observe social distancing when attending. There will be refreshments during the interval. From the proceeds of the live show, we will be donating money to Charlton Kings Guiding and Cheltenham Samaritans.
The show will include live performances and recorded items.
A digital version of the show will be released on 7 December via our website when there will also be a link to donate to Shelter via Just Giving.
We’ve been enjoying regular play readings since early in 2020. They’ve given participants
opportunities to try out different character parts, and for the Players to explore new pieces
which could be performed ‘live’.
Our reading of an adaptation of Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’ has resulted in the issuing
of an audio production as currently advertised. A request out in the community, for
submissions from creative writers for sketches to be performed, resulted in lively and thought-
provoking results. A one act play was also submitted and it is hoped that the Players will be
able to mount a live production in 2022.
The Christmas Show
There will be a video produced for 2021 as there was for 2020. Last year’s video release was
viewed a significant number of times and raised over £700 for the supported charities through
JustGiving. We hope to continue that achievement this year.
A live show is being planned in parallel and will be in the parish church, St Mary’s, on 4 th
December at 2.30 p.m. We hope an afternoon performance might appeal to a wide range of
people in the community. This will give an even greater opportunity for fund raising for local
charities. See Forthcoming menu item for further information.
We’ve produced two newsletters during 2021 to cover things the Players and members have
been doing during the current Covid-19 restrictions. The latest, dated September 2021, is now
available – see side bar or menu item.
