Plans To Revive Christmas Theatre Event


Maggie Perkovic

A St Mary’s Theatre Club member is hoping that enough Scilly singers, actors and performers will come forward to help reinstate a former festive tradition.

Maggie Perkovic says ‘Mince Pies and Monologues’ was a special evening held in the run up to Christmas for around 20 years.

It started when there wasn’t much in the Christmas calendar, so they decided to put on a festive collection of performances in the Masonic Hall.

But dwindling numbers and different events on the same date meant the event didn’t happen last year.

Former contributors included Tony Dingley and the late Shirley Smith.

Maggie says anybody who would like to take on one of the list of items to perform, or who has their own ideas, should get in touch.

She’s thinking about holding the event on the first Saturday evening in December and it’s likely to be in the Masonic Hall. You can contact her on 422 029.
