The Lark in the Park
Our annual charity fundraising event is confirmed for Sunday 7th June 2020 at the Parque Torre Leonera in Benahavis. The charity this year will be the Asociacion Adintre, which supports the homeless and those living in poverty.

We have just heard that the Del Sol Singers have agreed to perform and we have Clarice Williams, so we just need a third act. All acts perform for free for the charity! We are waiting to hear from a popular super singer….we will let you know if they can join us.  Sheila Mellor has agreed to direct the play and Pat Kelly will be the emcee.

Our next play reading
Sandra Sprawson has agreed to organise our next play reading on Tuesday 21st April 2020 at El Candil Bar in San Pedro. We meet at 7.30 pm for an 8pm curtain. There is no charge for this event and no need to book. Simply come along and read a part or just sit and listen. It is always a very pleasant evening to be part of.

Staged play reading/rehearsed play reading
We hope to have an event on Tuesday 19th May 2020 but we cannot confirm this yet. Please watch this space!
