Babushka Drama Workshop
Just before Christmas, we held a four day drama workshop looking at the Russian Christmas story, 'Babushka'. The twenty members of the cast, ranging from old-timers to some quite new to the world of drama, had a hectic time preparing a play, with Russian songs and dance, painting scenery, including a new nativity stable scene, and making programmes and posters. The characters included the three wise men who brought to life the famous TS Elliot poem, 'The Coming of the Magi' with backing music 'Babooshka' by Kate Bush, The Angel Gabriel and all the nativity characters as well as Babushka herself and a pantomime camel. Suffice to say, a great time was had by all. Thanks to all cast and crew for giving up their holiday!
