A few months into our existence and our first production run was an adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in an adaptation written by Richard George. The group was divided in two and the remaining members appeared in a production of Two Weeks With the Queen.


As our first ever production it was only right that this appeared as part of our 10th birthday party. We performed “Violets Bubblegum” scene and some of our newer members were joined by Jess Hooker reprising her role as Violets rather concerned mother!
