Updates from Committee Meeting Sept and Oct 2015


Spring Slot

Next year’s spring slot will be Rope directed by Matthew Friett. More details to come soon!

House of Dracula

The youth group are working really hard on their next show, House of Dracula. It will be for one night only on the 14th of November so get your tickets from Naomi now! It is the most ambitious show the kids have done for a long time and well worth your support.

Stars in their Eyes

We are still looking for a couple of acts for Stars. It will be on the 5th of December and promises to be a fabulous evening. We need you to come be your idols! Don’t worry if you don’t look exactly like that person or sound exactly like them, it’s the performance that counts! Email 

My Brilliant Divorce

We have had standing ovations, we have had multiple emails in, we have had people stopped in the street! Every single piece of feedback has been utterly astounded by this show. If you haven’t booked your tickets yet, do it now. Here are some of the pieces of feedback shared with us:

I had sat just in front of what turned out to be the actor’s daughter and I said to her that her mother was b r i I l i a n t and I/we were “gobsmacked” at the length of the script the actor had to learn with very little prompting.  Her daughter asked me to meet her mother afterwards and I was proud to shake her hands and she looked exhausted.  Positively first class

It turned out to be one of those special evenings that are truly memorable. The work that went into the production must have been enormous, and the end product brilliant.
