IT'S PANTOMIME TIME AGAIN!!!!
This year Keynsham Parish Players are performing A Sherwood Tale: Our all-original version of the popular Babes in the Wood.
A Sherwood Tale: Our original version of Babes in the Wood is at St. John's Church Hall, Keynsham on March 20 - 22nd at 7.30pm with a 2.30 pm matinee on Sat 22nd.
Tickets £7, Concessions £5, availabl from The Parish Office, Cast members and on the door.
After a sell-out performance some years ago at Wellsway School, this year we are back on stage with an updated version at our home venue of St. John's Church Hall, Keynsham.
An enthusiastic cast has been rehearsing for some months to bring a fun-filled performance with original script and music. There is an heroic principal boy with his followers, an hilarious dame with her elaborate costumes and risqué character and also a beautiful heroine and 2 very cute babes. Of course there has to be a wicked villain with his sidekicks, and the Fairy Queen who uses her magic to bring everything to a satisfactory conclusion. In fact there are all of the characters, the romance, the devilry, and the laughter that you expect to see in a well written, compelling and thoroughly entertaining pantomime.......not to be missed.
As always, we will make a donation to charity from any profits made so please come along, enjoy yourselves and and help us support local charities.
The Alpha Course, run by Simon & Ruth Howell is now up and running - and it is no longer possible to join for this particular course. Alpha is a 9 week introductory / refresher course about becoming and being a Christian. Many people here in Keynsham, and around the world, have experienced God’s love for the first time, or for the first time in a long time, through attending an Alpha Course. The evenings are friendly (they start with a meal), thought-provoking and great fun. If you are interested in joining a future course, please ring/text Simon on 07971 582332 for a chat about whether it is for you.
First Sunday of the month 10.30am St John’s services. These services are planned by a group that meets monthly a few weeks beforehand. If you are usually a member of the 11.15am congregation, and would like to help with the planning of these services it would be a great help. Please speak to one of the clergy or Roger Peach.
