Canterville Ghosts - The Canterville Ghost and Other Spooks

Synopsis:
Mr and Mrs Otis and their children move in to Canterville Chase, undeterred by its reputation among the locals for headless horseman, white ladies, ghostly pirates and zombies, all presided over by The Canterville Ghost, a Tudor fop with a centuries-old curse (and a ridiculous hat) upon his head. We do hope you'll join us this Christmas for a feast of creepy fun.

Gills Around the Green

Synopsis:
What's the Catch of the Day?. . .. . .You are! Travelling cosmetics salesman Vernon Spratt is travelling home to spend Christmas with his parents in Walberswick. the snow is coming down thick and fast and his car gets stuck in a snowdrift. Spratt calls for help, and then he waits. . .and waits. In a desperate attempt to keep warm, he smears himself with his entire stock of "Omega - 3 anti-ageing Serum" and promptly loses consciousness. He awakes to find himself in a house he does not recognise looking out onto an idyllic village scene. apart from a fishy aroma, all seems perfect. But as Vernon Sprat soon discovers, there is more to this picturesque (if pungent) village than meets the eye! No trace of his family and friends, no mobile phone signal, and not a fish and chip shop in sight! another hilarious Christmas Show from the wicked pen of Julian Harries, with scintillating songs from Pat Whymark

Perils of Pinocchio, The

Synopsis:
The thrilling story of the little puppet who dreams of being a real boy is brought vividly to life by Suffolk-based theatre company, Common Ground. run by Pat Whymark and Julian Harries. Over the last 4 years, they have built up a loyal following for their blend of joyful theatricality, song, dance and physical comedy. Pinocchio's adventures - his encounters with the fairy with the blue hair, the devious fox and cat, the terrible secret of "Funtown" and the terrifying giant shark form a parable of the often tortuous process of growing up and joining the human race.
