Work With Savvy Theatre

Crisis Skylight Croydon members have also worked successfully with Croydon’s Savvy Theatre Company at the Fairfield Halls to create their own theatre company, Crisis Averted! During lockdown, rehearsals went online and below is a taster of their work. The company is now meeting weekly for socially distanced rehearsals, directed by Sheree Vickers, in preparation for Savvy’s Christmas show, a steam punk opera based on Jack and the Beanstalk!
