(with apologies to William Shakespeare)
Two actors, both attired in festive garb
In fair Colchester where we lay our scene.
From silly songs to spoken witty barb
Where bingo cards were filled or rather lean.
From forth the lively lips of these two stars
Came lines from famous Christmas songs and Bard.
And so we filled our cards and sang some bars
The well-known tunes we found were not so hard.
Derek Daniels charmed as Boogaloo Stu
Lorraine Bowen, the polyester queen
“Talented” Crumble Lady as we knew
To join in song the audience was keen.
Ronnie, Jason, David are also named
We sang, we danced, we all were entertained.
