Me and My Girl
Due to current restrictions and uncertainty attributed to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Kentish Players have taken the difficult decision to postpone their 2021 production of ‘Me and My Girl’. We are really disappointed to be sharing this news with you and like everyone involved in community theatre, we look forward to returning to a rehearsal space and performing live in a theatre very soon.
