Play Reading Group

The next reading will be held on Thursday 13th June at 7.30pm

This month the reading will be held at a member’s house so if you’d like to attend please email Teresa Robertson trprmarch49@btinternet.com for address details, etc.

The play being read is ‘Good People’ by David Lindsey Abaire.  Information about it can be found at :   https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_People_(play)

Planning Permission Granted

Planning permission’s been granted for our development plans.  You may have seen the plans displayed in the Theatre Foyer. The work includes extension of the ground floor and a larger first floor extension. These changes will enable us to provide patrons with a more spacious foyer and bar area and will improve our accessibility.

We’ve also had agreement to extend the backstage and scene dock area which will give us a bigger costume store and scenery storage space.

A small team has been formed who’ll now focus on raising funds so that we can start work. Look out for more information over the next few months and if you think you can help with contacts, etc., please contact Nigel Elliott

NODA Award Win

On Sunday 14th April the annual NODA awards for the West Midlands regions were announced.  We’re really proud to have won the ‘Best Drama Award’ for our production of  Journey’s End last October.

Congratulations to director Steve Smith and all the cast and crew.

Talisman Friday Night Social
Friday nights are really popular in the Theatre so the valuable support of volunteers to open and run the bar is much appreciated. Please sign up to ‘man/woman’ the bar on the planner pinned up next to the bar. If you fancy ‘having a go’ on the bar pop down on a Friday evening and speak to Des McCann.
