Were back on the road this week and heading to Woking, New Victoria Theatre with The Great Gatsby and Three Little Pigs.
This is the first time in 16 months we've performed The Great Gatsby and we are all excited about reviving the production which finished it's last run at London Sadler's Wells to sell-out performances across the entire week!
