January 2018



Happy New Year!

Where did December go?...
No really, where did December's Newsletter go!?

Don't worry.  You haven't missed it. We took the opportunity of the busy holidays to bring forward the January edition and future Newsletters. We'll be aiming to publish future Newsletters within the first few weeks of each month. This will better align the newsletter with our committee meetings so that we can bring you the most up-to-date news.

Company Christmas Party and End of Year Review

The Company Christmas Party was a thoroughly enjoyable event. It was great to see over 30 of you there! Huge thanks go to the organisers (Maria, Mary, Ben, Gwen, Lisa, Sophie and Dylan) as well as all the members who performed throughout the evening.

Sun and Clouds with title Summer Double Bill

At the end of last year we shared that 'The Real Inspector Hound' by Tom Stoppard and one other short play would form our Summer Double Bill production - Sunday 17th to Sunday 24th June 2018.

We can now announce that 'Black Comedy' by Peter Schaffer is the other short play.

That's not all!  We can also announce Reading dates for both plays:

  The Real Inspector Hound:   Tuesday 6th February @ 7:30pm
  Black Comedy:   Tuesday 13th February @ 7:30pm

Audition dates will be confirmed shortly.  Keep an eye for the details on our website or Facebook...

We are excited to be able to announce the cast and creative team for our first production of 2018, The Memory of Water.

However, there are a few positions we are yet to fill, so there is plenty of opportunity to get involved:


A very important role to fill as rehearsals continue on Mondays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays. A Prompt is required as soon as possible.

Assistant Set Designer

Carol is very keen to have someone on board who can help to realise her vision of the set. This is also an excellent opportunity to learn more about the Set Design process from a seasoned member.

Prop Master

If you are able to help out in any of these areas, please get in touch.
