This year we are supporting Shelter, the charity which supports people with homelessness or housing issues, via a Just Giving page which you can find using the following link, or by searching Just Giving for Charlton Kings Community Players Shelter appeal. If you enjoy the show, your donations to this worthy cause will be greatly appreciated.
We hope you enjoy the show and will send it on to family and friends.

Musica Vera are holding a concert at St Mary’s Church, Prestbury, at 3 pm on 18 December 2021 entitled ‘Music for Christmas’. Admission is £8.00 to include a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie.
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
Last year’s LUBM 2020 video 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. We hope the 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.
