Cast & Crew Theatre Workshop presents...

...Two Online Productions For Lockdown

During this unprecedented year, Cast & Crew have missed treading the boards terribly and after many Zoom meetings, made the decision to throw a couple of short virtual plays together for your entertainment. Though these plays are completely free to watch (and because we cannot shake our usual charity buckets) we ask you kindly donate to our online charity collection via JustGiving. Christmas can be a tough time for many in a financial sense, and due to the pandemic, this year will be even harder. St Nicholas Parish of Canvey organise regular food banks to help those in need, so your donations toward these videos will help feed someone for whom Christmas is just another day. We thank you from our hearts. Cast & Crew Food Bank Collection 

Our 2nd Online production by Sally Catling

Manifesting a week after A Covid Nativity will be the whacky, paranormal spoof, Ghost Of A Chance. Written, directed and produced by Sally with social distancing in mind, this comedic version of the popular ghost hunting type TV show was filmed over Zoom and created on her cutting room floor, better known as an iMac. With a fair few dynamics added, the less than perfect paranormal investigators will have you giggling your way into a New Year that we hope will be nothing like the last 🤞

By Martin Lepley

A Covid Nativity, written, filmed (in the garden) and produced by Martin Lepley with his wife Sarah on co-production, is a fun version of the famous Christmas story with a cast of crazy characters to put a smile on your face during this strangest of Yuletide seasons. Martin and Sarah worked very hard to make the video available to watch in time for Christmas and we hope it brings our audiences some festive cheer. 

In loving memory of Cast & Crew Theatre Workshop Founder - Robert Simmons

In Loving Memory of Tom Jea 1963-2019

Tom was one of our long standing backstage boys who sadly lost his battle with cancer after a brave and astounding fight. He was our gadget man and always had such a positive and cheerful outlook - even until the end. We will miss this huge personality. Sleep peacefully,Tom, with your old buddy Rob xxxx
