STA Newsletter – Snow White and Dogfight Prep

Last Week

The last week has had a number of fantastic A Cappella performances in the Winston, plus a Devised Show in the Pegg. Lots of money was raised for charity, and a number of new members (who joined the STA at the start of the year) worked hard and used all they had learned to put on some great performances.
