"THROUGH your newspaper, I would like to express my thanks to the Stage Door Theatre Company for the excellent show It's Another Swing Thing, which they staged at the Windmill Entertainment Centre last week.

All the cast gave a memorable performance, but I particularly enjoyed Jake Bates and Kelan Pannell's rendition of Me and My Shadow. Congratulations and well done to all the members of the Stage Door Theatre Company for providing the audience with an enjoyable evening's entertainment."
