Casting Announcement: Jack

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 I write, we’re into the second week […]
