Charlbury Amateur Dramatic Society’s reading of “Shen Teh Gets a Visit” at St Mary’s Church on the 29 of April was a very successful first, not only for CADS but, we hope and believe for St. Mary’s. Our company enjoyed performing in the space. The scale of the building itself is an exciting challenge and a wonderful aesthetic opportunity. A particularly pleasing aspect of the event was the involvement of our audience in a lively discussion following the reading. CADS are particularly grateful and impressed by the open and welcoming stance of those who manage, run and support St Mary’s as not only a place of worship but as a focus of an open and engaged community.
