October News Letter
Hi all, I really hope you are keeping well and looking after yourselves. I was very sad that the Christmas Concert had to be cancelled. This has been quoted as the beginning of Christmas celebrations by our audience members many times. There was a huge lack of support from CUDOS members for the concert, which was hit with a few cast and crew catching covid and others isolating that it really wasn't a viable option for this year. Fingers crossed we can get through panto rehearsals without too much disruption.
I am really looking forward to the Dinner Dance and seeing you all in your finery and don't forget to decorate your face masks for the occasion.
