The Maskers' Christmas anthology will lift your spirits and push your nostalgia buttons. It is late December 1957 and the world is suddenly a very different place – the threat of nuclear war, Teddy Boys and, on the brighter side, television and Elvis Presley! We invite you to sing along to some familiar and less familiar Christmas songs and laugh at the quirky tales and verse, all bound together with a collection of characters, each with their own story.
Your ticket includes a glass of Mulled Wine or Orange Juice, and a Mincepie!

An Italian Straw Hat
A horse and a hat cause wedding party chaos!!
In this renowned comedy in the French 19th century farcical vaudeville tradition, the hero, Fadinard, is about to get married to Hélène, when an attractive lady and her irate lover pop up. They announce that his horse has compromised her by eating her rare Italian straw hat and that they will not leave the bridal chamber until Fadinard produces an identical one!
Fadinard rushes out to find one – and the newly-arrived wedding-party, thinking that he is on his way to the ceremony, jump into their cabs and follow him. Then follows a delirious chase, faster and faster as Fadinard hunts for a replacement hat and the guests hunt Fadinard!! How can it end?

"We had a lovely time on Saturday at Hamptworth. The Director and helpers were very solicitous of our welfare. The production was extremely good and well performed. Costumes were very colourful and made the characters stand out in the gardens. We also loved the add ons like the taxis and the car which were very clever. We felt very privileged to have had the opportunity to attend. Thank you" - Mayor of Romsey
