Rehearsal of The Memory of Water pic 2

The Memory of Water
Directed by Liz Maisey

Wednesday 7th to Saturday 10th March 2018

Liz reports that the cast are off book and making great progress on this intriguing play. The full cast was listed in the January Newsletter, and the technical/backstage team are:

  • Props team: Gill Wilkinson and Gill Cocks but they need one or two more helpers if anyone would like to volunteer simply reply to this E-mail or contact us here
  • Lighting: Dylan Thomas and Mary Peterson
  • Sound: Rob Prosser in charge of sound
  • Prompt: Maria Marriott

​Cliff Cocks will lead the Front of House team and is asking members to help with Front of House, either to usher or on the bar or with coffee. You can volunteer either through the Playhouse Sign Up Genius site or by contacting us here.

As this is a one-week run, missing some of the benefit of 'word of mouth', your committee has instigated a programme of publicity. Your help in sharing or retweeting social media advertising and promotion would be much appreciated, along with the usual word of mouth and encouraging family and friends to come.
