'Who Stole Father Christmas?'Written & directed by
When Father Christmas vanishes along with the contents of the safe Senior Detective Constable Sergeant Inspector Kris Kringle of the North Pole Special Branch Police Constabulary is on the scene to solve the mystery.
By deputising the audience and singing lots of songs Kris Kringle sorts through the facts. Was it Wonky or Flippin Elf? Or Little, Littler or Oddly Elf? How about Mrs Christmas? Or the representative of the Asia Toy Company? Someone knows more than they're letting on as the blizzard has stopped any escape for the villain.

Curses! Foiled Again (2nd Week)
By Evelyn Hood; directed by Heather Giles
Henry thinks he's written a potentially award-winning play for the pending Festival. Of course it's not, the script is total rubbish - a corny melodrama to boot and it's not very well cast. But is there a glimmer of sincerity by the actors for the script? Don't hold your breath! The whole thing is pretty dire, dripping with awful alliterations in the appalling dialogue (and that's just the cast members' personal comments!). The cast is far from committed, the last rehearsal is going to the dogs and the air is heavy with Henry's agitated angst. Oh dear, poor Henry!
