Article submission by Jonathan White


The Andrews Panto & Plays Society (TAPPS) are performing ‘A Christmas Carol’ (comedy version) at St Andrew’s Church Hall on Bedford Street in Crewe.

Performances will take place on Friday 11th and Saturday 12th January 2019, 7pm both days with a matinee on Saturday at 2pm.

Tickets prices (unchanged since 2015) are as follows:

Adults = £5

Children = £2.50

Family ticket (2 adults/2 children) = £12

Please note: no tickets will be available on the door.

Money from this year’s pantomime will go to St Andrew’s Church and charities, plus a small amount will be held in reserve for future TAPPS productions.

TAPPS has given away over £3,000 in the years since its formation.

Pantomime organiser Fred Allman said: “Our production is a tongue in cheek version of the Charles Dickens classic, following our tradition of presenting pantos with a slightly different angle from the norm.

“I guarantee audiences will leave with a whole new perception of this well-known story.”

TAPPS was formed in November 2014 to stage a panto for the local community in the St Andrews Church area.

Since then the society has grown and includes many people from the local community and further afield, working together with church members.

Since the formation the society has staged five pantos, five variety shows and has hosted play reading evenings throughout the last five summers.

Some members have also been involved in dramatic presentations at St Andrews Church.

The society enjoys a busy social life including theatre trips, country walks and other events throughout the year.

TAPPS is non-profit making so any money goes to charities and the church.
