A tradition, which is fast becoming an essential part of Christmas in Thanet, is the Sarah Thorne Festive Production. This year we are pulling out all the stops and have for your delectation and delight: FESTIVE FRIVOLITIES AND DIVERTISEMENTS. This will be a chance to envelope yourself in the glory of Christmases past, with a return to the elegance and refinement of the supper club!
Once inside the Memorial Theatre you will be transported back in time: hat check girls to take your coats, table seating with mince pies and nibbles, mulled wine served at the bar, plus of course cigarette girls selling confectionery at your table. A world of courtesy, elegance and rollicking good fun.
Entertainment will be provided by the cream of Thanet Artists, performing comedy sketches, magic and songs. Eminent local artists performing will include Miss. Lisa Payne, actress and producer of past events for Sarah Thorne, Mr. Steven Todd and Mr. Bill Harris recreating their Jeeves and Wooster roles, magic and prestidigitation provided by Alan Wright with support acts by Gordon Eyles, Leah Lawry-Johns, Andrew Nolan, Charle Evans and pianist Wilmot O’Higgins. Your compere will be the vivacious local authoress Jane Wenham-Jones.
This is something a little different to the traditional pantomime that the whole family from grandparents to grandchildren will enjoy. We are encouraging the audience to dress up in any style from a bygone era and we will be awarding a nightly prize to the best dressed!
Seating will be limited so advance booking is very advisable; this is one Christmas treat you don’t want to miss!
