A Wicked Year

Last night I witnessed the final performances of Wicked Christmas by the Community Company and what a wonderful night it was, a chocolate box of festive delight! However as the cast took their final bow, I couldn't help but reflect on what a great 10th anniversary year it has been for the company. It all started in February with Clydeside Valentine, followed a performance at The Hilton Hotel, 5 members then visited and performed in Orebro, Sweden, the Great Hall in Edinburgh Castle was our next venue before our Swedish friends made a return visit to the Citizens, what a wonderful international exchange this turned out to be...which brings us round to last night's Wicked Christmas 4 and closure on 2009. It really has been a great year for the company, with so many highlights and I'm sure the company will reach new heights in the 2010 as it takes on it's greatest challenge yet with a main stage production of the American classic The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck..Don't miss it !

Have a Wicked festive season and may the next decade be full of theatrical delights !
