Peter Stevens, director of this year’s Christmas extravaganza is delighted to announce his cast. “I was extremely impressed by the talent on display as unwitting auditionees were assisted/forced to learn a song and dance routine in just 30 minutes before showing off their acting skills. As a result, we have assembled a spectacularly talented cast of SLT stalwarts and brand new members to bring the fervid imagination of Matthew Davies and I to life. As I write, we’re into the second week […]
