Babe, the Sheep Pig is the tale of high adventure in the farmyard that became the hit movie Babe. It is a captivating play for children young and old.

community for those who return. The lighthouse keeper is also the mayor of
the community. The family is close and enjoys family moments while enduring
the heartaches that the war can bring.
In a festive mood, the ladies of the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society mount another assault on the classics with their stage version of A Christmas Carol. They enthusiastically portray a dizzy array of characters from the Dickensian favorite (and a few which aren't), engineer some novel audience participation while bravely contending with an intrusive PA system and a real Farndale first rap their vocal cords and feet around two original, show stopping songs.
