Performers see charity in action

Performers see charity in action

THE cast and production team of a show which raised money for the Chiltern Centre for disabled children and young people in Henley were shown round the charity’s base.

Jeux D’Esprit raised £630 through donations at three performances at King’s Arms Barn in Henley in November, As a thank-you, they were given a tour by chairman of trustees Paul Barrett and members of the centre’s buddies group, a group of 16- to 25-year-olds with learning disabilities who meet there to socialise on Mondays.

The production featured two folk tales, Blue Beard by Charles Perrault, and a new work called The Last Prince, written an illustrated by Henley cartoonist and author Steve Allender. The production combined the voices of Guillaume Gougeon, Sabrina Fawcett, Harry Petrie, Emma Dodd, Jason Fox and Brittannie Willis with an array of lighting and sound effects.
