Community Plays 2011 & 2012

Community Plays 2011 & 2012

9 September 2011 to 31 December 2012
Community play 2010/11

Our first ever Community Play in December 2010 "A Camberwell Carol" was a huge success involving 25 local residents and two community choirs.

This was then extended to our play "Bermondsey Stories". With the aid of South Bermondsey Partnership we worked with residents of all ages to tell stories from Bermondsey's past, present and future, in a show that involved song, music, and acting. The group performed at Salmon Centre in Bermondsey on March 25th 2011.

Community play 2011/12

On January the 7th and 8th 2012 local residents got together to perform their version of the classic feel good film “It’s A Wonderful Life”. A group of modern day angels arrived in Camberwell to help a local resident realise he was a much valued member of the community. Their version “It’s a Wyndham Life” was devised by the group and performed at the Blue Elephant Theatre with much success. We were also pleased to link with the Crossways Three C’s group in Peckham who helped us bring our story to life.
