Here's our Scary Fairy for this Christmas

A quick profile -  Sally Ann Staunton is joining us for Santa And The Christmas Dragon. She's our newest company member so here's what she says .....
 
Cumbrian born and bred Sally knew her biggest adventure would be leaving her home town of Barrow-in-Furness after training to tour the country and the world as an actor musician. Not only is she a fairy in this show but she is also a fairy in Yorkshire otherwise known as Fairy Peaseblossom so her magic sparkle keeps on giving....
 
After training at University of Central Lancashire Sally has performed with several theatre companies as an actor-musician including Interplay Theatre, Tutti Frutti, SparkArts, Tall Stories, Derby Theatre, Slunglow to name but a few. She is delighted to be working with Alive & Kicking as not only are they a Leeds company where she is based but the market is her second home. You can't keep her away from the cockles ! 
 
Sally will be joining Luke Dickson as Tricksy Pixie and Martin Riley as Santa himself.
 
Santa And The Christmas Dragon is at Leeds Market on Saturdays from December 14 and at The Macready Theatre in Rugby from December 8 until December 13.

And off we go at Barwick-in-Elmet

All the children at Barwick-in-Elmet Primary School have already met Charles Brown from the Foreign Office when he rudely interrupted their assembly to tell them to get ready to meet the King of Mangrovia, Goldilocks' next door neighbour, Prometheus, Caesar, the Scottish king and his wife and many more.
 
Tomorrow the school staff will meet some more of Alive & Kicking's Primary School portfolio as part of their training day.
 
Watch this space!
