Easter Newsletter


Hello everyone

This is to keep you up to date with what is happening in the club. As you know we are presenting our Spring production Laying the Ghost by Simon Williams and opening night is not very far away now, the 18th April so I hope you have your tickets booked.

We are considering staging ‘Allo ‘Allo by Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft for our Autumn production. This is a play based on the hugely popular TV series and will require as many acting members as possible to be available so I am planning to have a reading of the play on Tuesday 1st May in the Green Room starting at 7.15 p.m. – drinks and sandwiches will be available and I hope that if you are interested in acting in this production you will be able to come along. If you cannot get there on that particular night but would like to be considered for a part then I should appreciate it if you could contact me, either by email or by telephone (see below) as we shall have to make a decision as to whether it is possible to cast this play (there are some non-speaking parts) if not then we shall start to look for something else. The planned dates for the production are the last two weeks of November, the last night would be Saturday 1st December.

‘Allo ‘Allo will be great fun to stage (also a challenge) as it provides plenty of opportunities for dressing up and silly accents. I saw RADS do this a few years ago and it was hugely funny and they did it extremely well.

Please make sure that you have made a note in your diary of our next social event to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee – the afternoon of Sunday 10th June at Headlam Hall, further details will follow.
