Let’s hear it for the girls!

The 2012-2013 season is well under way, with no fewer than three FEATS productions of Calendar Girls scheduled for the next six months. Catch them in Antwerp, Brussels and Copenhagen. Anyone know of any more?

Other forthcoming productions include the ever-popular Arsenic and Old Lace, a Ray Cooney farce and a number of pantomimes.

The “What’s on” calendar to the right of this page aims to list events of interest to the FEATS community throughout Europe. Information also appears in the FEATS newsletter. But with well over twenty groups to keep an eye on, the webmaster and newsletter editor sometimes have difficulty finding out what they are all planning. If your show isn’t there, we apologise. But let us know about it!
