very successful end to a very successful season - that was
the general verdict (audience and reviewer feedback) on
last week's production of Willy Russell's "Stags and Hens".
It was absolutely
great to see so many new young people on stage and - consequently
other new young people in the audience. Welcome - and thanks-
to Tina, Matt, Jemma and Chris. Welcome back and thanks
to Sam, Katie-Ann, Nick, Phil, Jimmy and Gus and to the
redoubtable Steve Sanday. Please, all of you, come back
to our stage soon!
Huge thanks also go to the backstage team. This was another
excellent demonstration of our sound and lighting talents
and capabilities. The whole thing was enhanced (if that's
the right word..) by a truly, and appropriately, vile Paul
Chokran set and the really excellent first time directing
by our own Corrina.
Next up, after
the break, will be "The Crucible" Arthur Miller's immensely
powerful re-creation of the events and characters involved
in the Salem witch-hunt at the end of the 17th century.
Sam Harris will direct this epic and wonderful play .. but
more of that later.
all our Autumn shows and our traditional pantomime appear
on our website.
A young actor
to play Andrea in "Ladies in Lavender", our November production
is still needed. Please contact the director David Draper
on 01676 532912 if you can help
Just a reminder
that after Christmas we will stage the following:
February "Absent Friends" Director: Vanessa Comer
March Youth Theatre production in repertory with "The Musical
of Musicals, the Musical"
June "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by Shakespeare, Director:
(All these shows are subject to the usual provisos).
- see you on the renovations work-party.
