Saturday 8th December 2018 saw Spinnaker performing in our Christmas show What the Dickens at the beautiful St.Mary’s Church in Portsmouth. The story was written by our talented Chairman, Jill Cook which had a clever Spinnaker twist on the classic story by Portsmouth’s, Charles Dickens…A Christmas Carol.
We were delighted to have special guests Charles Collingwood and Judy Bennett from BBC Radio’s The Archers appearing as Scrooge and The Ghosts of Christmas. We delighted our vast audience with stunning a cappella harmonies which sounded fabulous in the acoustic rich venue.
Spinnakerette and Membership Secretary, Kay Sumpner, produced and managed the show. A hugely talented lady indeed with vast experience of stage production in amateur dramatics groups. We invited the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, Councillor Lee Mason who enjoyed our show tremendously., posting rather lovely feedback on his Facebook page.
Reporters from both The News and Horndean Post attended and we received amazing reviews in their publications following the show.
