A Swinging Christmas takes a journey from the carnival capital, Rio, to the cool sands of the Isle of Wight.

The Cast of Stage Struck are presenting their latest show for all the family, with comedy, dance, song, and a special pirate surprise.

The singers will perform a number of Christmas classics, there will be a classic tale of forlorn love on the high seas - with a twist, specialist soloists and a mad-baking panto dame.

This year TCOSS will be supporting local charity, TWIGS community gardens, a resource to give people who experience mental health problems the chance to regain confidence, self-esteem and to learn new skills. The group will be donating 50 per cent of all ticket sales to the charity.

A Swinging Christmas takes place at Immanuel Church, Upham Road, on Saturday, December 8 with performances at 3pm and 7.30pm. Tickets are £10 for adults and £5 for children from 07596 151 051 thecastofstagestruck@gmail.com, facebook.com/thecastofstagestruck/ or www.thecastofstagestruck.com
