The Andrews Panto & Plays Society (TAPPS) performed the pantomime 'Aladdin' at St Andrew's Church Hall, Bedford Street, Crewe in mid-January this year. Aladdin made a profit of £927. The profits from the pantomime were divided between St Andrew's Church funds, Macmillan Cancer Support and the Salvation Army, Crewe.
Members of the panto cast and crew were present at a buffet and cheque presentation evening on 2nd March 2018, with cast members wearing their costumes. A cheque for £300 was gratefully received by Clare Bloor from Macmillan Cancer Support. A cheque for £300 will also be given to the Salvation Army, Crewe.
Fred Allman, TAPPS director/organiser, said "This year the profits from the pantomime were divided between St Andrew's Church funds, Macmillan Cancer Support and the Salvation Army, Crewe. Since the formation of TAPPS in September 2014 we have given away over £2,000 to the church and charities."
As well as the annual panto TAPPS stages two variety shows and summer play reading evenings each year. There is also an active social programme. If you would like to get involved with this lively group please contact Fred Allman via text/phone on 07968829999.
